Ithuthuko was founded in 1997 as a publisher of academic books. An ongoing need in the market for online learning material motivated us to collaborate with experts in the field of Teacher professional development to produce CPTD-online. The themes of the courses are selected in such a way that it enables teachers to deal with every day situations. It is not subject related but speaks to the underlying supporting knowledge required to be an informed teacher.
The aim of the platform is to enable a professional teacher to earn CPTD points without being concerned about the high cost of attending face to face courses. A teacher should be able to complete CPTD points when and where suitable to support the individual needs of the teacher.
We collaborate with the school to ensure that the principal or CPTD coordinator at the school are aware of the progress of each teacher. Monthly reports which are provided to SACE will also be provided to the CPTD coordinator at the school.
Ithuthuko is a verified level 4 contributor BBBEE company.
All our courses are SACE endorsed and contributes towards level 3 CPTD points.
