Best Answer

There are hundreds of institutes of higher learning where you can study to become a teacher. You can either study full-time at a regular university or part-time through a correspondence university like Unisa. Most universities have very informative websites that will give you full details about the course, diploma or degree you are interested in as well as on the entry requirements that are needed to study through them. Most universities require you to have a matric exemption. The below website is just a starting point.

There are two things to aim at in life, first to get what you want, and after that to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind has achieved the second.

Try a teaching college

You need a matric exemption. You can then study at most universities' education departments for 4 years to get your degree in teaching. If you already have a degree, you can do an HDE through UNISA.

You obviously do not have family or friends that are teachers in public schools, as you cannot be that stupid to want to become a teacher of any sorts. Rethink your decision and choose a less stressful career.

A correction to Thumbsie's entry above: The "Boland College of Education" is not to be confused with the Boland College. Boland College is a public Further Education and Training (FET) College and does not offer teacher training. Neither the Boland College of Eduction (in Wellington), nor the Cape Town College of Education (in Mowbray) exists in their original form. Both now form part of the Cape Peninsula University of Technology's (CPUT) Faculty of Education and Social Sciences.
