Approaches to In-Servicing Training of Teachers in Primary Schools in South Africa
Mahlangu, Vimbi P.
Bulgarian Comparative Education Society, Paper presented at the Annual International Conference of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society (14th, Sofia, Bulgaria, Jun 14-17, 2016)
This paper focuses on the approaches used by school heads in helping their growth and their teachers in primary schools in Limpopo and Mpumalanga Provinces of South Africa. The Department of Basic Education expects school heads and teachers to bring change in their school performances. The problem is that in these primary schools heads and teachers' specialised knowledge is a problem. Interviews were conducted with school heads and some teachers completed a questionnaire. In the studied primary schools in-service training of teachers is done by teacher unions, School Management Teams, universities, through an Integrated Quality Management System and through donor assistance.
