My name is Dumazile and my home is in Estcourt (150km from Pinetown) where I live with my husband and six children. My eldest two daughters are both studying to be teachers through UNISA (University of South Africa – an open distance learning institution which offers internationally accredited qualifications).
I have worked as a facilitator to train teachers who are studying Early Childhood Development Levels 1, 4 and Diploma at Further Education Training Colleges in Emnambithi and Universal College Outcomes (U.C.O.). Alongside this I have taught students CAPS (Curriculum Assessment Policiy Statements) which is a concise document that provides details on what teachers need to teach and assess on a grade-by-grade and subject-by-subject basis and which aims to ensure clear guidance and consistency for teachers when teaching.
I have also taught HIV and AIDS awareness to give hope to those who loose their trust and confidence in life.
I am very glad to be now working at Phakamisa and am enjoying teaching my students who themselves teach young learners. In the time I have already been working here I have ideas and future plans to help with the development of Educare and Childminder course which would take Phakamisa to the next level.
