How does it work?

Face-to-face training

In these 2-hour training sessions, you will meet in a group of a minimum of 20 teachers and the expert facilitator to complete the course. You will receive a set of course notes. You will be able to do the assessment after the course in your own time, and submit it by the due date.
These training sessions are held across the country when numbers allow. Once registered, we will contact you about the next course in your area. Alternatively, you can get a group of 20 teachers together and we will come to you.

Cost: R570 per two-hour session

Online training

Log in online and do the session at your own pace. The sessions are made up of videos as well as online activities and assessments. You will be able to download a set of course notes to guide you. You will be able to do the assessment after the course in your own time, and submit it by the due date.
We currently offer sessions from Courses 1 to 4 as online training. Scroll down for the full Via Afrika Digital Education Academy curriculum.
