Education students at the Qwaqwa Campus welcomed Heritage month in style when they showcased their various cultural backgrounds as part of their curriculum to qualify as professional teachers.

“To qualify as professional teachers, students need to have three informal certificates – culture, first aid and sports,” said Moeketsi Dlamini, Professional Officer: Teaching Practice.

“Teaching is not only about the content in the classroom; it also involves understanding of physical, social and cultural diversity. The Faculty of Education intends to develop teachers who will encourage their learners to take part in extramural activities. It is expected that students will implement these activities at the schools where they will be employed,” Dlamini said.
