Vision

Irene and Lindsay saw that many teachers in South Africa (and in many other countries) are disheartened and disconnected from community. They want to do education better but have no idea where to start or what is even possible. Existing PD in schools is commonly one-size-fits-all, ad hoc, lacking in vision and does not connect teachers with relatable examples, nor allow for teacher agency, differentiation or personalisation - the key ingredients for change are amiss! In response to this, we proudly present PurpleZA: your one-stop PD solution - Putting people and purpose at the heart of teacher education.
