TCE Level 2 is designed to provide information and practical methods which will enable the student to effectively guide the saved child in progressive spiritual growth. The course is centered on the principle that true teaching of the Word of God produces change. Students gain skills which will enable them to offer practical help to children as they establish and develop a personal relationship with God. Students are required to participate in teaching five children’s classes applying the methods learned in the course to enhance classroom study. In addition, two required practicum sessions conducted during the course provide each student with evaluated experience in applying the theory taught.
Teaching Children Effectively™ (TCE™) Level 1

In addition, three required practicum sessions conducted during the course provide each student with evaluated experience in applying the theory taught.
The Academy of Sunday School Teachers (ASST) was launched in February 2014. The acronym ASST (pronounced “assist”) embodies our mission to assist teachers to reach and teach children. Our vision is for Sunday School to be more than a strategy to nurture children in our churches. It should also be a strategy to grow – by reaching out to children beyond the walls of the church.
In our vision, we visualise a vibrant Sunday School where … • children desire to come • they have fun and learn about God • their lives are being transformed • the number of children are growing
It is one thing to know the subject matter thoroughly but another thing to know how to teach it to children effectively. We seek to address the latter in the Methods Track. Effective teachers teach in such a way that a complicated subject is made simple and that their students can understand and grow to love what they love; and for Sunday School teachers, it is our love for our LORD and His word.
ASST comprises of two tracks, the Bible track and the Methods track.
