GWF Week In Edu-Tweets #80

1. From GWF CEO Kate Groch, our week kicked off with a positive note after a successful meeting with all of GWF’s stakeholders and partners from Johannesburg all in one room to listen to what GWF’s vision for the future is.


2. From JDLC Bridging Academy Facilitator Ntokozo Sambo. Our students at JDLC have moved onto yet another exciting module on the ReadytoWork programme. We are thrilled to see one of them closing off the previous module with a whooping 100%.


3. From Open Learning Facilitator Teaman Manzini. One of the most valued norm at Good Work Foundation is that every opportunity to learn is taken and used wisely. This is an example of an opportunity to learn from each other from the Open Learning team.


4. From GWF Head of Development Ryan James. Can a Zebra save a Rhino? that was the leading question in the most recent Investec clebration and acknowledgement of wildlife heroes in Cape Town.


5. From GWF Head of Programmes and Campus Operations Maria Goretti-Awogu. Maria was one of the Edutech conference delegates at the Sandton Convention Center in Johannesburg for two days. Maria had the privileged to listen to amazing speakers who are looking at how tech can be integrated into the African context of learning.

7. From HDLC Bridging Academy Facilitator Jane Ngwenyama. We are fortunate to have our friends Charlie and Toby Milner with the GWF staff, doing different workshops in English and reading for the next few weeks.


8. From Open Learning Academy Coordinator Glenrose Mashigo. Someone smart once said ‘practice makes perfect’, so our facilitators live up to that slogan by ensuring that before they deliver each Bridging Academy lesson, they run their own class where they learn and teach each other.


9. From a friend we met at Londolozi Private Game Reserve Trisha Crookes. After many years apart, this team was brought to one place again by a common passion for working to make world class education accessible to all South Africans.


10. From HDLC Head of Campus Linky Nkuna. Linky has been working hand in hand with Charlie and Toby for many years and continues to, inspired by a passion to uplift her community.


11. From Head of Development Ryan James. It is said that, ‘team work divides the task, and multiplies the success’, We were excited to have GWF CEO Kate and Maya Groch come join the team at the Edutech Conference and also be GWF ambassadors around the stations they visited to learn about more tech and digital education.
