The Department of Basic Education (DBE) in partnership with MIET AFRICA and UNICEF, hosted the inaugural national Care and Support for Teaching and Learning (CSTL) Conference on 12-13 June 2018 in Irene, Pretoria.
More than 230 delegates ranging from CSTL policy implementers, policy makers, policy influencers, learners, and educators attended the Conference which was opened by Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga. “On our journey of a thousand miles, we are not alone…we are grateful for the support and guidance of organisations like UNICEF and MIET AFRICA, “said Motshekga.
Under the theme Consolidating our collective efforts, the purpose of the conference was to share the DBE’s framework for care and support, and provide an opportunity for partners to discuss the initiatives currently being implemented in schools within CSTL’s 10 priority areas and in the areas of partnership, multisectoral collaboration and system strengthening in support of policy implementation.
CSTL is a response by Ministries of Education in South Africa and the SADC region to the many issues threatening the provision of quality education for children. CSTL, or Care and Support for Teaching and Learning aims to transform schools into inclusive centres of learning, care and support where children stay in school and thrive. Watch this short overview on how CSTL South Africa ensures that every child has access to quality education, and the bright future they deserve.
MIET AFRICA received a Certificate of Recognition as a partner of the North West Province of Education’s Quality Learning and Teacher Campaign for the Education: My right! My future! project at the Quality Learning and Teaching Awards ceremony held recently in Mahikeng. Education: My right! My future! is a three-year partnership between MIET AFRICA, the Department of Basic Education and the National Education Collaboration Trust with funding from Educate a Child. It seeks to bring 30 000 out-of-school children in six districts across four provinces back to school, and to ensure they attend school regularly and complete their primary schooling. MIET AFRICA was recognised as a key partner in supporting out of school children in the Bojanala District of the Province.
In addition, MIET AFRICA’s five parental volunteers/training co-ordinator assistants also received awards in the Excellence in Volunteerism (Parental Volunteers) category.
