A word from our clients.

Tongaat Hulett Starch is dedicated to make a difference in the communities that surround our factories. Education is one of our top priorities as future economic growth and prosperity is directly linked to our youth’s education and development. We have partnered with Brainwave Careers (NPC) since 2017 to improve the teaching practices through their ongoing in-classroom training (ICT) program in our supported school/s. The support provided to teachers through this programme are combined with educator development workshops to further equip and develop the supported teachers.

Our partnership has yielded significant success in Sicelo Primary School (Meyerton, Gauteng). Learner results as well as educator’s teaching methodologies have improved remarkably. A reading programme was introduced with great success and measured in the learner’s improved ability to read. Through our partnership we have equipped and now support a remedial classroom where learners with barriers to learning receive remedial teaching.

To have Brainwave Careers (NPC) as a partner in education has proved to be a valuable investment.

My name is Lebohang Selepe. I was so grateful when I got an opportunity to study through Brainwave. I’ve learnt so many things that will improve my teaching skills. I learnt how to prepare classroom lesson plans, and how having a daily programme will make my life easier. I’ve also learnt how to monitor the development of babies and young children, while working together with their parents. I have really enjoyed my studies with Brainwave and I’m ready to apply what I have learnt through this ECD NQF 4 qualification.
