Vocational and Pre-Vocational Stream

Primary School Pre-Vocational Stream

The Primary School Pre-Vocational Stream has two classes which cater for learners in the Foundation Phase (Grade 1 to Grade 3) and the Intermediate Phase (Grade 4 to Grade 6) who need to work at a slower pace and have concepts consolidated more.

Here the curriculum as well as the learning environment is adapted and differentiated to meet each individual’s particular needs. Each learner works on the grade level that they are on for Maths and English. For instance, a Grade 5 learner might be working on Grade 5 Maths but Grade 4 English.

The children also do formal assessments and exams to prepare them for future exams. Concessions will be given where applicable. Those children who cope with this stream will stay in it and continue up to the High School in the Vocational Stream This stream also follows the CAPS syllabus, and the aim is to try and “catch up” any gaps in the child’s education so that he/she can be moved back into the remedial stream if the child is able to cope.

When a learner has bridged the gaps in their learning they may be able to move into the Remedial Stream.
