Embury Institute for Higher Education is a fully accredited private institution that specialises in teacher education. They mainly focus on the foundation phase: pre-school and primary school teachers. Established in 1995, they’ve successfully trained some of the best teachers in South Africa. They also offer short courses that aid practicing teachers in achieving their CPTD (continuing professional teacher development) for the year.

Different from more traditional modes of training, Embury sends their students on regular practicals to schools throughout the academic year. This results in graduates who are already trained in the practical modes of teaching and have more experience than their more traditional counterparts.
