The Teacher Internship Collaboration South Africa (TICZA)

The Teacher Internship Collaboration South Africa (TICZA) has emerged as an innovative vehicle that brings together government, academia, the private sector and implementers in order to drive innovation and continuous improvement in the delivery of teacher internship programmes. The collaborative project, which is being managed by JET, aims to demonstrate teacher internships as an alternative pathway of Initial Teacher Education.

The aim of TICZA is the adoption of an alternative pathway of initial teacher education (ITE) which is effective, efficient and widely-utilised in public schools in South Africa.
