Closing date - 20 January 2017: Grand Masters is a 26 part reality show on SABC 2 in which 15 willing teachers are called to participate. During the show, they will complete enlightening tasks, designed to guide them to a destination where they will be equipped to tackle the teaching profession with enthusiasm and courage.
The selected teachers, male and female, should have been in the profession for a minimum of 5 years. These teachers from rural, peri-urban and urban schools in Gauteng will share their experiences from different perspectives and find solutions to everyday professional challenges during the course of the series. Although they may all be based in Gauteng, they should represent the Nation through a diversity of cultural backgrounds.
Participants will be asked to spend up to two weeks at a boarding school where they will carry out their tasks and activities. The motivational and actualisation tasks, managed by coaches and educational gurus, will be active and visual.
They will be devised around the most pertinent teacher needs such as self development, identifying beliefs and values, leadership, management, planning, decision making, team work, problem solving and communication.
