"The Teaching School is a dream that has now become a reality. I believe that the Teaching School is a way forward for teacher education in this country. The immediate on-the-job application of the learnt theory is extremely beneficial for producing successful teachers. Still, beyond this, we are educating teachers in a tertiary setting which is Christ-focused, and this is ground-breaking. The St Philip's Teaching School produces teachers who have had four years of in-classroom teaching experience and teachers educated from a Christian worldview."
