DBE meets with the Teacher Internship Collaboration South Africa steering committee

On June 26, 2024, a significant step was taken to improve student-teacher training in South Africa through the Teacher Internship Collaboration South Africa (TICZA) steering committee, which met at the DBE Conference Centre in Pretoria. The meeting, chaired by Ms. Lala Maje, Director for Initial Teacher Education, included stakeholders from JET Education Services, the DBE, the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), the South African Council for Educators (SACE), and various NGOs.

JET CEO James Keevy, discussed the project's objectives and the common competency framework for mentors, aimed at providing standardised support for student teachers. Ms. Maje highlighted the importance of supporting student teachers, particularly those in distance learning, through mentoring, classroom management, and teacher autonomy.

The TICZA programme aims to enhance student-teacher training through a shared vision, measurable goals, and a standardised competency framework for mentors. By fostering partnerships among government, private, and third-sector organisations, the initiative seeks to equip future teachers with the skills and knowledge needed for quality education in South Africa.
