Matthew Goniwe School of Leadership and Governance (MGSLG) is a development institute that provides learning programmes in the education sector to enable quality teaching and learning in schools.

The institution is located in two campuses; Vrededorp which serves as the Head Office and Benoni which mainly serves as the ICT Training Centre for programmes.

MGSLG plays an important role in capacity-building for School Governing Bodies, Teachers, Learner-leaders, Parents with school-going children, School Leaders and Managers in the form of Principals and School Management Teams.

The focus of our work is in areas of:

  • Professional growth of educators and school governors;
  • School leadership and management development;

  • Other capacity-building initiatives relating to new education policy initiatives and teacher-up-skilling.

MGSLG has over the years, established viable and value-adding partnerships with Higher Education Institutes and other public/private institutes in its quest to conceptualise and develop cutting-edge programmes for the schooling sector.
