ORT SA CAPE focuses on four core areas:
Due to the challenges in our education system, they focus their training on Early Childhood Development (ECD) and foundational learning skills in young children. Courses include: Literacy development, Perceptual Skills development, and Learning through Play. They also offer pre-service training for unemployed youth to study towards a qualification in ECD.
Together with the LEGO Foundation, ORT SA CAPE distributes LEGO resources and offers training on the use of these resources to schools and ECD centres in disadvantaged communities across the Western Cape.
This initiative addresses South Africa’s high unemployment rate by recruiting, training, and placing young men and women in schools as teaching assistants for one year. This allows for interns to develop a love for education and potentially continue in this field in the future.
Their Edutech hub focuses on training educators to demystify coding, technology, and robotics to incorporate these technologies in their classroom and curriculum.
