The Department of Primary Education entails the preparation of teachers for the General Education and Training (GET) phases on the NQF. It compromises of two qualifications which are the B.Ed. Foundation Phase (Grade R-3) and the B.Ed. Intermediate/Senior Phase (Grade 4-9). The main focus of the department is to develop teachers that are well prepared for reflective classroom practise through innovative methodologies like Assessment for Learning and self-regulatory learning.
Furthermore, our approach promotes active learning and learner centeredness in preparation for critical-independent thinking. Our aim as a department which provides training for formative years is to nurture young minds through well prepared teachers.
