"When I signed up for the course I did not really know or understand what Inclusive Education was. As the days passed, I came to realise the importance of the course for me as a teacher and how important it was for the learners as well. I found that the government has put some structures in place, but they are not really fulfilling their commitment to Inclusive Education. I found the course to be useful and I learnt new ways of adapting my teaching methods and styles to accommodate every learner in my class."
Vanessa Coetzee, Senior Phase and FET Educator

"I attended the three-day course on “Developing inclusive learning programmes that enable participation of learners experiencing barriers to learning and development”, in April and it was fantastic. Ms Smit was an excellent facilitator with fantastic subject knowledge. The course was very practical and I have been able to apply it to my daily teaching practice. I also learnt that barriers to learning is so much more than learners with learning problems and I definitely look at each learner with open eyes now, knowing that most of them have struggles that they bring to school which one may not always be aware of. This has changed my teaching technique, hopefully for the better. Thank you Oakley House Training!"
