Teachers play a crucial role in society and managing and shaping student’s futures in stressful times can be a heavy burden to bear.
The COVID-19 pandemic has completely changed the face of education. Teachers have had to learn new skills, cope with additional workloads and manage greater expectations from parents. It’s hard to lead others when it’s hard to know what tomorrow holds.
SACAP recognises the pressure that they are under and invited educators to join a discussion with our team.
