Volume 41, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0587-2405


The article attempts to satisfy two objectives : to arrive at a clear understanding of effective professional development (PD) programmes for teachers, and to outline how key aspects could influence the effective implementation of the National Policy Framework for Teacher Education and Development in South Africa, in particular that of CPTD. The article focuses on the following aspects : teachers' learning, teachers' commitment, quality leadership, the school context and requirements for PD programmes.

Twee doelwitte word vir die artikel gestel : om 'n duidelike begrip te hê van effektiewe professionele ontwikkelingsprogramme vir onderwysers en om sleutelaspekte te bespreek wat die effektiewe implementering van die Nasionale Beleidsraamwerk vir Onderwysersopleiding en Ontwikkeling kan beïnvloed, in besonder Voortgesette Professionele Onderwysersontwikkeling. Die artikel fokus op die volgende aspekte : onderwysers se leer; onderwysers se toewyding; gehalte leierskap, die skoolkonteks en die vereistes waaraan professionele ontwikkelingsprogramme moet voldoen.
