The Wordworks office was virtually overflowing with Home School Partnership Programme portfolios in the first week of August! These rich and detailed portfolios are evidence of teachers having run their 8-week programmes with parents in their communities.

139 HSPP facilitators from 38 schools submitted their portfolios. Furthermore, 39 of these facilitators took up the offer to submit individual portfolios which met the requirements for the HSPP short course through UCT. All portfolios will be marked by a specially appointed evaluator and those registered with UCT will be marked and then checked by an external moderator. Successful candidates will receive their certificates in November.

We applaud these teachers for their dedication! We thank them for the wonderful work they do with parents and also for contributing to Wordworks’ growing knowledge base through their insightful reporting.
