    1. 1. ECD Fundamentals: supporting teachers to teach and learn Presentation to BRIDGE ECD CoP 27 August 2013
    2. 2. Context • ECD fundamentals a long standing issue. • Varying levels of capacity and quality of materials. • Collaborative initiative by Ilifa / DG Murray / Saide : research reference group included a networking group and curriculum group. • Still some issues to resolve, but developed a concept.
    3. 3. Fundamental issues • Integral to ECD qualifications pathways, professionalisation of ECD, articulation of qualifications, bridging the occupational / professional divide. • Access to high standard of ECD qualification and quality ECD teachers. • Capacity of ECD trainers to offer fundamentals. • Funding • Cross-sector and inter-departmental: DBE, DSD, DHET, occupational (QCTO) , professional (CHE)
    4. 4. Current context • ECD to fall under QCTO; • New occupational qualifications and QCTO requirements; • FLC will be one component.
    5. 5. WhatisFLC?
    6. 6. A possible solution ECD foundational learning competence: • Communications and mathematical literacy • Use generic FLC curriculum framework • Integrated or parallel, or stand-alone Identified gaps: • Verbal and extended writing skills; • Methodology; • Academic skills.
    7. 7. Materials development: • Identify existing high quality, relevant fundamentals materials; • Collaborative shared materials; • Core development team; • Parallel and aligned to scoping of occupational qualifications Providers: • Interested RTOs / organisations / institutions register with AQP (IEB) • Offer FLC to own and others • Subject specialists • Training of FLC trainers • Additional support and mentoring from core team • Assessment centres for FLC – external assessment through bank.
    8. 8. Assessment: • FLC bank of multiple choice assessment tasks; • ECD preparation – adapt exemplars as formative, developmental assessment activities beginning and middle; • Final external through assessment centres;
    9. 9. Way forward • Participate in QCTO scoping of ECD qualifications; • Get special dispensation for FLC to apply to current qualifications; • Begin developing ECD FLC concurrently with scoping. • Broaden reference group – sheilad@saide.org.za Thank you.
