One of the main focuses of the Faculty is teacher training. This is, among others, achieved through our two BEd programmes:

BEd Foundation Phase Programme: The main purpose of this four-year programme is to train teachers for the Foundation Phase (Grades R to 3) who will be able to prepare learners to meet the distinctive requirements of our time.

BEd Intermediate Phase Programme: During this four-year programme, you are trained to be a teacher of learners in the Intermediate Phase with the competence to teach two intermediate school subjects and two languages. The programme covers the theory and practice of all the learning programmes from Grade 4 to 6.
