Math Teachers Skills Audit

One of the teachers (Marissa Di Silvestro from Glenvista High School) who receives our monthly newsletter, thought that we might all find this very interesting.

Two things:

The first is that Angie Motshekga, the basic education minister is going to institute a skills audit for maths teachers. She hopes to complete this audit by the end of the 2014 financial year.

Secondly, the Department of Education has started a database of qualified teachers. This will allow them to fill posts at a much faster rate with qualified teachers. To actually view the database go to the home page and right at the bottom right of the page is a link called “unemployed teachers” click on this link to go through and find the database to download.

Thanks Marissa for this helpful information:)

What are your thoughts about having your maths skills audited? Do you think it is necesssary?
