Developing a competence-based teacher education programme in Swaziland
The workplace of the twenty-first century will be, in many respects, significantly different from that of today; therefore, vocational educational graduates need to be prepared for the changes expected in the workplace. Calls for vocational teacher education programmes that incorporate critical skills for high school vocational teachers. Reports the findings of a study conducted to identify professional vocational education competences needed by Swaziland teachers of practical studies (agricultural, commercial, home economics, and technical). Employs a procedure to develop professional competences. Identifies eleven competence areas developed by a professional panel of experts at a two-day focus group interview workshop.
