This programme provides prospective teachers with knowledge of the three learning programmes (literacy, numeracy and life skills) as well as the skills to integrate the eight learning areas into these learning programmes. The programme emphasises hands-on classroom competencies and the production of teaching and learning media.
In the first three years various academic and professional subjects/modules provide background knowledge for teaching with planned and site-based learning opportunities for observation and practical teaching. The fourth year consists largely of site-based learning and incorporates an element of research.
