Abstract

Effective professional development programmes help teachers to acquire the most recent knowledge of subjects and to use appropriate techniques to enhance student learning. The National Policy Framework for Teacher Education and Development attempts to address the need for suitably qualified teachers in South Africa. This qualitative inquiry aims to explain staff's perceptions of the provision of continuing professional development programmes in the light of the mentioned policy. The following two main categories have emerged from the data analysis : the provision and logistics of effective professional development programmes.


Doeltreffende professionele ontwikkelingsprogramme help onderwysers om die mees resente vakkennis te verwerf en om geskikte tegnieke te gebruik wat leer aansienlik kan bevorder. Die Nasionale Beleidsraamwerk vir Onderwysersopleiding en -ontwikkeling poog om te voorsien in die behoefte aan toepaslik-opgeleide onderwysers in Suid-Afrika. Hierdie kwalitatiewe ondersoek is daarop gemik om personeel se persepsies van die voorsiening van voortgesette professionele ontwikkelingsprogramme in die lig van bogenoemde beleid te verduidelik. Die ontleding van data het die volgende twee hoofkategorieë aan die lig gebring : die voorsiening en die logistiek van professionele ontwikkelingsprogramme.
