9780796922427: Beginner Teachers in South Africa: School Readiness, Knowledge and Skills (Teacher Education in South Africa)

This report summarizes the findings of the first wide-scale study of South African teachers in the first few years of their careers undertaken in five South African provinces. Employing both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies, the survey examined the perceptions novice teachers held about their skills and competency and those of school managers about the teacher’s performance in provinces selected due to their relatively high absorption of fledgling instructors. Among the findings presented are a need for the department of education to assume a critical and supportive role in the development of the beginners, the importance of a multisectoral approach in improving conditions in schools, and the necessity of ongoing investigations into effective teaching.

Book Description HSRC Press, South Africa, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Despite a strong emphasis on teacher education and development in post-apartheid South Africa, statistics show a low retention of beginner teachers in the teaching profession. This trend has serious implications for learner outcomes, given the contribution teachers can and should make to learner achievement. Beginner Teachers in South Africa is the first wide-scale study of teachers in the first three years of their careers and offers substantive evidence suggesting the need for interventions to support them. Based on research undertaken in five South African provinces selected because of their relatively high absorption of beginner teachers, it examines the perceptions of novice teachers about their own skills and competencies and conversely, the perceptions of school managers about their performance. Employing both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies, the study highlights the critical and supportive role the Department of Education needs to play, the importance of a multi-sectoral approach in improving conditions in schools, and the need for continued investigation into effective teaching. This support for beginner teachers is essential both in order to retain teachers and to develop good teaching practice that will result in successful learners. This report provides important reading for educationists, academics and policymakers as well as readers with an interest in the South African education system. This monograph is part of the Teacher Education in South Africa series. The series documents a wide-ranging set of research projects on teacher education conducted by the Education, Science and Skills Development research programme within the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC), as part of a consortium of research partners. Moreover, the series provides a comprehensive investigation of the dynamics shaping the professional development of educators in South Africa today. Bookseller Inventory # AAN9780796922427
