Welcome to Teaching Schools South Africa’s online survey. This survey is designed to find out from you what you feel are the most important approaches to developing thinking skills in our students. You can answer as many or as few questions as you like, plus we would love for you to add your own suggestions too.


Professor Jonathan Jansen

“The reason I was drawn to TSSA is because of this novel idea that in matters social as well as educational, the best tool at our disposal as human beings is to think our way out of problems; far too much emphasis in South African education is on coverage of content and too little on the underlying thinking skills crucial for understanding complex scholarly and social problems”

Professor Jonathan Jansen, TSSA Patron


“TSSA’s work is critical in building the capacity of teachers to foster thinking skills across the curriculum”

– Mary Metcalfe


The latest neuroscience indicates 3 conditions for neuroplasticity, and the TSSA approach meets these criteria to re-wire the brain for success:

  • engaging staff and learners in purposeful motivation
  • a growth mind set which builds a sense of achievement and self efficacy
  • developing a supportive environment for independent thinkers.

These lead to improved performance and wellness.
