This programme provides prospective teachers with knowledge of two or more subjects they will teach in the Further Education and Training (FET) Phase (Grades 10 – 12), as well as practical and professional training in the relevant learning programmes and methodologies. Students are exposed to relevant teaching methodologies and related educational theory in years one to three.
They are introduced to school-based classroom experience from the second year, while the fourth year comprises a full academic year of site-based learning, incorporating an element of research.
Students will study two academic subjects in years one to three with an additional academic subject on first-year level that provides the background knowledge for teaching.
