The development of foundation phase Heads of Department has been identified as a priority by the Early Childhood Institute in GDE. Matthew Goniwe School of Leadership and Governance undertook to train the foundation phase Heads of Department in Managing Grade R classes at their respective schools to ensure that Grade R classes are managed and supported.
Target: Foundation Phase Heads of Departments
- Foundation Phase HoDs were capacitated to manage Grade R classes in a two day programme.
- The programme focused on managing and leading grade R with content relating to grade R especially assessment and barriers to learning.
- Due to the need for additional capacity on assessment and barriers to learning a further one day programme was initiated.
Outcomes: HoDs lead and manage grade R classes effectively and efficiently.
