Mukhanyo now provides a way for future school teachers to begin their studies with a foundational qualification in theology. This new education track will also help church leaders and other Christian workers to grow in their teaching ability.
Mukhanyo’s accredited Higher Certificate in Bible Teaching has been expanded with an education track. This track will prepare students to become Christian teachers and will also be a valuable tool in their daily life. These extra modules were developed by Dr Gerrit Heino, an education specialist serving at Mukhanyo.
Students can now choose to add a maximum of four education modules to this diploma-level Higher Certificate. These four modules, “Becoming a Christian Teacher” (CE01 to CE04), introduce a student to a variety of topics in the field of Christian pedagogy and didactics with the following themes:
The lessons in the study guide for each module correspond with two education books, The Teacher’s Handbook and The Essence of Christian Teaching. These books, along with the user-friendly study guides, give the student a comprehensive introduction to Christian teaching.
To graduate with this NQF level 5 accredited qualification, students must complete the eight core modules in the programme along with these four education modules. They will then graduate with a “Higher Certificate in Bible Teaching for Christian Education” – an excellent foundation for further study at the degree-level or a teaching ministry within the church.
