Pushing for Progression 15-week teacher development programme

MC Dev Prg logoBased on the research and development work carried out in the South African Numeracy Chair (SANC) project in after school clubs since 2011, we note that working with learners to focus specifically on the development of fluency and number sense over a short period of time has positive results. Therefore, we aim to build on these successes with this programme. This programme aims to support teachers in setting up and running clubs of their own using a structured 15-week club programme.
