Great news! 1,518 schools complete training to transform their schools into centres of excellence
In July 2022 the last in a series of workshops which began in January 2022 to empower the school management teams of 1,518 schools in the Limpopo Province of South Africa to reinvent their schools to become centres of excellence was completed.
These schools which are attended by over 570,000 students are situated in the Capricorn North, Vhembe East and Vhembe West education districts which are situated adjacent to the Zimbabwe border.
The District Directors of the three districts have reported to the provincial Head of the Limpopo Department of Education that they expect improved academic results at the end of the 2023 academic year mainly due to significant improvements in the effectiveness of School Leadership Teams and transformation of the habits of teachers, students and the SLT itself.
The Programme is driven by the Ms Onica Dederen, Head of the Limpopo Department of Education and the three District Directors but is implemented from bottom up by each school management team, teachers, learners, parents and the community. A winning combination!!
This Programme offers the world the first sustainable, transferable and scalable programme able to empower Ministries of Education of every country to transform every government school into a centre of excellence within 3-5 years.
De Beers and Worley Ltd who commissioned BCF to conduct this Programme to leave a meaningful legacy in the footprint of the mine are delighted with the progress made.
