Grade R ECD Teacher Development Project

In an effort to address the poor outcomes of basic education in South Africa, the government has prioritised early childhood development (ECD) and education in the Foundation Phase, covering the age group 0 to 9 years. The focus of this project is Grade R, which, in line with government policy was introduced into Gauteng public ordinary schools and some community organisations that offer ECD.

The Gauteng Education Development Trust (GEDT) appointed JET as the managing agent to initiate the work for the preparation, funding and implementation of the intervention. The outcomes envisaged for this programme are improved knowledge and skills of Grade R teachers/practitioners; improved learner outcomes in Grade R; and improved Grade R readiness for Grade 1. The inception phase took place in 2019 and included project conceptualisation, and the initiation of detailed planning and materials development.
