Professional development in South Africa
The Goethe-Institut South Africa is committed to the professional development of German teachers. To this end, we offer various courses in the field of German as a foreign language: The Goethe-Institut South Africa regularly organises regional training courses and seminars for German as a foreign language, which take place in the provinces of Gauteng, Free State, KwaZulu Natal and Western Cape. Multipliers trained as trainers conduct the training content in the four provinces.
We regularly offer free in-service training in both online and face-to-face formats. The offers, which are aimed specifically at German teachers in the primary and secondary school sector, include one-day training courses in the South African provinces, the multi-day German Teachers' Conference, the global training programme "Learning to Teach German" as well as online seminars and free information on training courses via an e-mail distribution list.

to the education and professional development series
The German Teachers' Conference is organised in close consultation with the DLV, the ZfA and the DAAD.
In the teaching team, the multipliers impart subject didactic content as well as new methods for varied German lessons. The content of the training focuses on learner-activating and action-oriented topics. Special emphasis is placed on the needs of the teachers; what is suitable for immediate use in class, which methods suit my learners and which materials can I use directly after the training?
All seminars are recorded and the PowerPoint presentations and content presented are available on the DLV website.
