Teacher training coding and robotics

Africa Teen Geeks in partnership with the Department of Education and UNICEF have launched a ground-breaking initiative to help close the digital education gap in South Africa. 2,000 learners from 1,200 schools will be trained by the Johannesburg based ATG, Africa's largest computer science non-profit organisation. Those teachers will then implement their newly acquired digital skills into the curriculum and build the IT potential of 1.2 million school children across the country.

The courses offered are aligned to the latest draft CAPS policy Document (Coding and Robotics) released by the Department of Basic Education in 2021. Upon successful completion of the programme, the teachers will be awarded 30 Continuing Professional Teacher Development (CPTD) in points in line with South African Council for Educators (SACE) requirements, it is also envisaged that the teachers partaking in this programme will form part of the Community of Practice in the 4IR Educational Transformation.
