As from 2017, Eureka Varsity will no longer be offering full qualifications but short courses that will be registered with SACE (South African Council of Educators) where registered educators who attend will be able to receive their CPTD Points (Continuing Professional Teacher Development).
The short courses will be focused on Early Childhood Development and will work hand-in-hand with BrainBoosters for effective learning material and resources.
Through this we aim to encourage educators of South Africa to accept the challenge of taking on a new approach to teaching an unlearn ineffective methods and change the way we look at South African Education.
