PMI Technical to train local educators

PMI Technical is expected to train an estimated 900 teachers and lecturers for the Department of Basic Education.

“This is one of the best training centres I have visited,” said Deputy General Minister of Basic Education, Mr. Mohammed Enver Surty, during his visit to PMI Technical’s training facility in Welkom in the Free State, which was aired on SABC 2.

He was visiting the site to see PMI Technical’s up-skilling training programme in action. PMI Technical developed this programme in response to the Department of Basic Education’s (DBE) request for assistance with the up-skilling of Grade 10, 11 and 12 teachers and lecturers in accordance with the new curriculum to be implemented in 2016.

During the June – July school holidays 273 teachers and lecturers from the Eastern Cape, Free State and Northern Cape attended training on the Grade 10 new curriculum as per the new CAPS document issued by the DBE.

This three-week training programme is the first in a series of programmes to take place over the next 18 months, during which time an estimated 900 teachers and lecturers will complete the training, with educators from Mpumalanga, North West and Limpopo provinces scheduled to attend soon.

Feedback from the teachers and lecturers who attended the training echoed the Deputy Minister’s satisfaction with PMI Technical’s training facilities and the manner in which the training is being conducted.

The Deputy Minister was so impressed that he is to recommend that the Minister of Basic Education visit the PMI Technical premises and he feels that all teachers across South Africa should attend training with PMI Technical.

“This training programme followed a lengthy consultative process of development, and logistical planning following the DBE’s confirmation in March 2016,” says PMI Technical Regional Manager, Hannes Fourie. “We arranged all transportation, accommodation, and catering as well as the provision of PPE and toolboxes.”
