TLDCIP is contributing massively to strengthening teacher education in South Africa

The Teaching and Learning Development Capacity Improvement Programme (TLDCIP) and the Teaching and Learning Development Sector Reform Contract (TLDSRC) is contributing massively to strengthening teacher education in South Africa, says Dr Diane Parker, Deputy Director-General: University Education at the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). 

In an interview with the Mail & Guardian, Parker said that for the first time in South Africa’s history, universities that offer teacher education programmes have joined forces to collaborate on a range of projects that have enabled the development of research-informed teacher education programmes and materials available to all institutions that offer pre-service teacher education programmes.

She said that 21 universities are now offering Foundation Phase Teacher Education programmes, focusing specifically on African languages. 

The TLDCIP is funded by the TLDSRC, a partnership programme between the DHET and the European Union (EU).

 

The TLDCIP has five main thrusts, addressed through five projects, namely:

  • The Teacher Education for Early Childhood Care and Education Project (TEECCEP)

  • The Primary Teacher Education Project (PrimTEd)

  • The Teacher Education for Inclusive Teaching (TEfIT) Project

  • The College Lecturer Education Project (CLEP)

  • The University Teaching and Research Enhancement Project (UTREP).

TLDCIP is closely linked to our SA Researchers Bootcamp Theme 11: Building Back Better- Teacher choices in action: An enriching supplementary module for ‘Teaching Practice’ in 2020 and beyond.
