Embury Institute for Higher Education


About this center

Embury Institute for Higher Education (previously known as Embury Institute for Teacher Education) is a fully accredited private higher education institution that focuses on teacher education and development. Embury trains students to become professional and responsible teachers who are equipped with the appropriate skills to teach in any classroom in South Africa.

Our teaching practice model is unique in South Africa. It is common practice for student teachers from other higher education institutions to spend one block period in a school per year, whereas our second- and third- year students alternate between one week in lectures and one week in a school setting for a major part of the year. By structuring things this way, we immerse our students in school-based teaching while also allowing them to return to the lecture room at regular intervals to be guided in reflecting on their experiences in connection with relevant theory. They can then return to their respective schools for another week of teaching practice, equipped with new insights and strategies. This training model ensures that our fourth-year students are well prepared for their six-week teaching practice. It also prepares our students to provide excellence teaching when they graduate - our ultimate goal!
