The South African Council of Educators (SACE) plays a significant role in enhancing the quality of education and professionalism among teachers, particularly those instructing history. A historical understanding is crucial in developing empathy, critical thinking abilities, and a comprehensive understanding of social issues, all of which contribute to shaping informed and tolerant individuals (SACE, 2017). History as a subject offers students the chance to learn about different cultures, societies, and human experiences, which instills empathy in learners. By offering students the chance to view the world from different perspectives, teaching history becomes instrumental in developing critical thinking skills. Emphasizing the importance of these powerful lessons, the SACE provides consistent advocacy for the teaching of history in schools (SACE, 2017). The SACE assumes a crucial role in setting professional standards and providing guidance for history educators. It endeavours to ensure that teachers have the required skills, knowledge, attitudes, and values that enable them to fulfil their role effectively. It also promotes ethical conduct among educators by setting, maintaining and protecting ethical and professional teaching standards. These practices aim to foster a culture of integrity, commitment, and professionalism among teachers (SACE, 2017). The essence of professionalism lies in the ability to imbue a culture of tolerance, respect, and inclusivity. In history classes where sensitive topics might be discussed, the ability of history teachers to handle such subjects with professionalism is key. These teachers play an instrumental role in shaping how students perceive and respond to diverse historical events and figures. Through their skilled delivery and adherence to professional standards, they can influence students' attitudes, perspectives, and behaviours positively. This can lead to a more inclusive, understanding, and respectful school culture (SACE, 2017). In conclusion, the role of SACE and the professional conduct of history educators in South Africa is invaluable in fostering a culture of empathy, critical thinking, and understanding of social issues among learners. By maintaining high professional standards and providing necessary guidance, the SACE ensures that history teaching becomes a means of building respect, tolerance, and inclusivity in schools.
