Clarendon Primary School is very proud to have a dynamic student learnership programme. Student who are studying towards a Bachelor of Education (Intermediate Phase) through UNISA are employed at the school. The school contributes a portion of tuition fees towards the cost of their studies and pays a small monthly stipend. Unlike the University setting, learnership students get daily hands-on experience with school life. They are also allocated time to study during the school day, and study leave for examination periods. Our students thrive under the care of a mentor teacher and we have found that schools are very eager to employ the learnerships from Clarendon Primary School.
On a daily basis, our learnership programme entails assisting mentor teachers in class, involvement in the extra-mural and cultural activities of the school, assisting in various administrative areas of the school, as well as substituting for teachers when necessary. Students are also included in professional development programmes attended by staff, and they are given opportunities to participate in various sport coaching and accreditation programmes. These wonderful opportunities are available to learnerships while they pursue their studies towards a teaching qualification through UNISA
