Training And Education Service Division:
Structured educational training workshops via the Girls & Boys Town National Training and Resource Centres. These centres provide training and consultation services within all nine provinces and to all professionals working in the educational and Child and Youth Care fiend including care givers, parents, principals, educators and learners.
- Direct youth education services via four national Girls & Boys Town Learning Support Centres that provide South African youth with access to the latest educational methods. The computer-based intervention systems evaluate and enhance learner educational needs in two critical areas – literacy and mathematics – which have constantly been identified as core challenges facing South African learners, and are the building blocks for all other learning.
- Each Learning Support Centre consists of four connected services: assessment and counselling, library, computer lab and a classroom.
- These facilities were designed to support learners struggling in mainstream educational classes. The intention is to mainstream these learners back to the school from which they were initially referred, as soon as possible following intervention.
