TfEL – Teaching for Effective Learning Framework is used in all SA schools. It reflects two key concepts:

  • Learning for effective teaching that supports leaders and teachers to see themselves as learners, reflect on their practice and create opportunities to develop their professional expertise.
  • Teaching for effective learning that supports teachers to develop their practice in three domains – create safe conditions for rigorous learning, develop powerful learners and personalise and connect learning.
