Computer training boost for Midlands schools
Educators enhance computer skills, gain awareness of work opportunities
Michaelhouse Community Partnerships Trust held its first computer training course for educators, coordinated by Robyn Gruijters and her team. The course ran from June 24-27, with more than 30 educators from 10 schools in the Midlands area.
The schools that participated included Asithuthuke Combined School, Bruntville Primary School, Crystal Springs Primary School, Dabulamanzi Combined School, Esiphethwini Sendiza Combined School, Isiphethu Semfundo Primary School, Jabula Combined School, Lions River Primary School, Shea O’ Connor Combined School and Thembelihle Primary School.
The aim was to improve confidence in computer use and increase awareness about the opportunities provided to educators with computer application skills. The information covered will enhance teachers’ knowledge of basic computer skills and the ability to use popular software programs to produce spreadsheets, documents and presentations in their different schools.
The Michaelhouse Community Partnerships Trust team said it was grateful to have spent four productive days with a group of enthusiastic educators who are willing to learn and grow in their field.
