Welcome to Stellenbosch University

Teacher professional learning (TPL)

​​​​​​​​​In the Teacher Professional Learning  component, SUNCEP offers full qualifications and accredited short courses to in-service teachers in Mathematics, Natural and Physical and Life Sciences as well as different management courses to school leaders and district officials.

Full qualification (ADE) and short courses can only be offered when 25 or more students enrol. 

For futher information on admissions for ADE courses, click here.  

SUNCEP follows a practice-based philosophy of teaching and learning to bridge the gap between theory and practice.

All the SUNCEP courses are offered in a blended format, consisting of face to face contact sessions, telematics sessions and interactive e-lessons. Mentoring forms an integral part of the post teaching process. This is offered either on-site, via the US telematics platform and/or via different social media platforms. Teachers can access these platforms (Facebook, Whatsapp etc) via their phones, tablets or computers.  

Teachers also participate in co​mmunities​ of learning with their fellow students, facilitators and mentors via these networks.

To obtain a certificate of competence in the short courses, teachers submit assignments that are imbedded within their teaching practices. Graduation from the full qualification require specific requirements.
