TICZA Implementation Compendium Issue 2 2024

Teachers are potential key levers to enable positive change in learner outcomes.

In 2015, various stakeholders joined efforts to design a pilot project that aimed to improve the quality of newly qualified teachers who studied through distance education. Save the Children South Africa (SCSA), in partnership with key stakeholders, designed and implemented the District Based Teacher Recruitment Strategy (DBTRS) project in the Thabo Mofutsanyana Education District (TMED) of the Free State.

The project's aim was to develop a new Extended Student Teacher Internship (ESTI) programme that would produce teachers who have mastered both subject content and the ability to teach that content in the classroom. An overview of the DBTRS project piloted in the Eastern Free State by SCSA together with the Department of Basic Education (DBE), Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), Free State Department of Education (FSDoE), TMED, North West University (NWU) and University of South Africa (UNISA) is presented in this latest issue of the TICZA Implementation Compendium.
