Mentors use techniques from the internationally acclaimed book “Teach Like a Champion” (TLAC) written by Doug Lemov to support excellent teaching practice. To promote meaningful learning, the team focuses on the following key areas:
Mentors will also hold Teach Like a Champion workshops each term with their mentored teachers. Participants will receive 5 SACE professional development points for participation in all four workshops. In line with the requirements of the Department of Basic Education, these workshops are held after school, outside of teaching time.
Two Lead Like A Champion (LLAC) workshops are held each year involving the School Management Team. It is compulsory for school principals, HOD’s and members of the School Management Team to attend these workshops.
Following these workshops, we ask that the SMT is available for follow up visits to check in on progress and support you with the implementation of what you have learned.
