Associate schools form the mentoring leg of The King’s Institute. These are schools that agree to our Statement of Faith, Code of Ethics and Mentoring policies and procedures.
SAHCET’s purpose is to educationally equip each generation through a Biblical, Christ-centred process to fulfil God’s purpose. These students must fulfil their calling in the schools and communities of South Africa and Africa.
As such, discipleship and therefore mentoring form an integral part of our programme. Because our plan is to follow a blended online approach, the involvement of local schools is vital. This will contribute to the success of the programme.
Schools found in the area where the student lives provide Mentoring and Work Integrated Learning. It is firstly an opportunity for student teachers to follow their mentors as their mentors follow Christ (1 Cor. 11:1). In addition they can see theory put into practice. It further gives the Teacher Interns the opportunity to get hands-on, practical experience. This is in contrast to the theoretical experience from their studies.
It is important that students must be of benefit to their own community from the beginning of their studies. For this purpose they receive mentoring in their community. They need to learn how to make a difference in their community. Students’ involvement in their churches and in outreaches is a requirement.
Our students must have a testimony of being born again. They must further be admitted to the BEd or on a pathway to the BEd. All students in association with TKI must be part of a mentorship programme at a school registered with The King’s Institute.
The King’s Institute’s mentoring policy requires the following of associate schools:
- The school must accept and sign TKI’s Statement of Faith (TKIP001) and the Code of Ethics (TKIP002).
- Registration with the DBE.
The following schools are in association with The King’s Institute:
