Research indicates that giving children a better foundation (preschool education), they will do better at school. We want them to be ready for school and ready for learning, but more than that, we want to see the Kingdom expanded!

We need to empower and enable teachers to do the best they can with the opportunities they have, to give the little children better futures.

Training Trainers:

We also train trainers as to ensure that more teachers are trained and therefore more children impacted. These trainers will undergo specific facilitator training and training on the material as to enable them to offer the teachers training. We support the trainers and contract with them to offer quality training as to ensure excellence.




Mentors:

We are aiming to offer every trained preschool teacher a mentor that will support them and ensure that they are implementing the programme as trained.

Training trainers therefore offers:

  • Pre-training – either attending a teacher training, doing reading, discussions on Internet and Skype
  • Full 3-day face-to-face trainer training
  • Opportunity to practise what they have learnt. As part of their training the new trainers present sections of the 5-day preschool teacher training. They need to implement what they have learnt, with the Isivuno Training director to observe, supervise and support them.
  • Thereafter a reflection meeting and suggestions regarding the way forward
  • Trainers receive:
    • All teacher material:  ABC for teachers; 2 Lesson plans books and Isivuno story file
    • Trainer material: Trainer guide, Trainer manual, Trainer admin outline, examples of some of the wall charts and a DVD with more resources
    • Continued support after the training
