Smart Partnerships for Primary School Teacher Development in Gauteng

New funding partners 


Thuto Trust recently concluded a five-year tripartite agreement with the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) and the Department of Basic Education (DBE), to offer full bursaries to thirty-five eligible B.Ed. students, to participate in the Thuto Trust teacher development programme at Primary School level. This is an exciting addition to the Thuto Trust programme and facilitates the inclusion of public schools to Thuto’s network of host schools in Gauteng, this being a fundamental component of the Thuto Trust strategy.

The internship partnering schools have already been identified in District 12, Johannesburg West, the 20 students have been placed, and we are ready to launch the programme.
