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!

A ‘home’ for creative’s at the CUT!
The Department of Design and Studio Art at the Central University of Technology, Free State offers students a unique learning experience with the accredited Diploma in Design and Studio Art. This diploma exposes students to Metal Fabrication, Communication Design, Textile and Styling, Visual Art and Digital Imaging in their first year of study. This technologically advanced diploma then offers students the ability to choose one of these subjects as a major in their second year of study while still being exposed to all the others.
Students are taught in small groups by studio experts and even have individual lecturers as their mentors in their third year of study to assist with projects and day to day planning. The studios and buildings are a place where creative’s can feel at home and students are even allowed to decorate and design their own studio environment (with their choice of paint, coffee, cushions etc.) in their third year of study.
To see the work of students and lecturers and what we are up to, we have a Facebook-page for students and prospective students: Department of Design and Studio Art, CUT.
The Department of Design and Studio art is where creative’s are born!
