MODEL A (IN-SCHOOL): MasterMoves KIDS PROGRAMME
MasterMoves Kids Centre
The MasterMoves Kids (MMK) in-class Model is an educational programme intended for Grade RR – 3 learners and is presented as an in-class activity. This programme is unique in the sense that it uses chess to understand Mathematics and Science concepts as well as basic life skills to the young learners at Foundation Phase. This Model has two types of Centres a school can choose from:
- School Owned Centre
A school has the opportunity to purchase a MMK Centre directly from Tsogo Sun Moves for Life, with the agreement between the school and Tsogo Sun Moves for Life. The school has an option of appointing a trained teacher to run the Centre or gives TSMFL the mandate to appoint a trained teacher in its stead. The MMK programme is implemented according to the school timetable.
- Agent/Individual Owned Centre
An individual can purchase an MMK Centre from Tsogo Sun Moves for Life and monitors the programme on behalf of TSMFL, with the agreement closed between the school and the agent/representative. The school has an option of appointing a trained teacher to run the Centre or gives the agent/representative the mandate to appoint a trained teacher. The MMK programme is implemented according to the school timetable.
TSMFL takes the responsibility to train the teachers or agents/representatives, as well as complete the relevant documents relating to contracts. The agent/representative will be selected and appointed according to criteria.
Level 1&2 training will be given to the agent/representative. The initial training is a 3-day session including the following:
