RFP: AASA Phase 2 - Early Childhood Development (ECD)

Request for Proposal (RFP): The provision of a four-year (2023-2026) Early Childhood Development (ECD) project to be run in approximately 84 ECD sites participating in Phase 2 of the AASA Education Programme.

The Anglo American Education Programme (hereafter referred to as the Programme) is an initiative of the Anglo American Sustainability Strategy, a core part of the Sustainable Mining Plan, and is part of Anglo American South Africa’s (AASA’s) commitment to be an active corporate citizen that engages with the real issues and challenges facing South Africa.

Working in partnership with the Department of Basic Education (DBE), the goal of the Programme is to improve the educational outcomes of learners in schools in communities local to AASA Operations in the country. Following on from Phase 1 of the Programme1, JET Education Services (JET) is the Managing Service Provider overseeing and managing the roll out of Phase 2, in three (3) AASA Business Units (BUs), Kumba Iron Ore, Platinum and De Beers.

The second phase of the Programme will be implemented in these BUs situated in the provinces of Limpopo, North-West and the Northern Cape respectively. The schools are spread across the BU Operations and the 84 schools, made up of primary and high schools, and are Quintile 1-3 schools situated in rural communities located on the perimeter of mining towns.

As in Phase 1, Early Learning will be a primary focus and support will be provided to Early Childhood Development (ECD) sites that are feeders to primary schools participating in the Programme. The inclusion of a Grade R component in Phase 2 acknowledges the importance of establishing a firm base of school and learning readiness in children prior to them entering Grade 1. 

JET and AASA are currently undertaking a procurement process for a service provider that has evidence-based and/or tried and tested intervention models in support of the Programme’s goals for Grade R. This Request for Proposals (RFP) is inviting companies/organisations to work alongside JET and AASA to improve, capacitate and enhance the capabilities of schools to provide an effective Reception year (Grade R), as determined by a participatory model of development.

The Deadline for submission is the 31st of October 2022 via email tenders@jet.org.za
