Welcome to PETS
(Professional Educator Training Schools)
Our mission is to improve learning by raising the quality of teaching by supporting the Continuous Professional Development of teachers with online web-based SACE accredited enrichment courses for CPD points.
We aim to use technology and traditional modes of delivery to improve teacher’s subject knowledge and classroom performance of literacy and mathematics teaching in multilingual and multi-cultural settings in the pre-primary (ECD) and Foundation phases.
All our courses have been developed with teachers, for teachers and have been tested in the classroom.
HOW IT WORKS
Welcome to the first on-line courses in South Africa to improve ECD teachers’ subject knowledge of Emergent Literacy and Mathematics, and Foundation Phase teachers’ understanding of Fractions, Decimals and Percentages – designed and created for teachers, by teachers and with teachers, tested in the classroom and configured especially for e-learning.
Create a Professional Learning Community. To benefit fully, it is recommended that you work in pairs or larger groups with colleagues who have similar interests to you, so that you can share your experiences and expertise.
Collaborative learning is encouraged. It not only makes the learning process more enjoyable, but it will also help you keep focused and motivated.
