Save the Children South Africa
Save the Children South Africa (SCSA) is in partnership with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), since 2016, implementing the “Sireletsa Bana Project” to reduce the prevalence of morbidity and mortality among children under the age of five living in Limpopo (Capricorn District) and Free State (Thabo Mofutsanyane District) in South Africa by 2019. The project aims to increase access to quality health services by strengthening health and nutrition initiatives in Early Childhood Development (ECD).
During profiling at 150 ECD centres it was revealed that there is a large gap in the training of ECD supervisors and practitioners which is essential to provide quality basic education and care to young children. Therefore, SCSA has embarked on an accredited training scheme for ECD practitioners as part of its programme.
SCSA endeavour to empower 50 ECD Practitioners in each province (25 in Limpopo and 25 in Free State) by granting them an opportunity to enrol and study for a full qualification on ECD Level 5 (Higher Certificate http://allqs.saqa.org.za/showQualification.php?id=64649). SCSA wishes to recruit a service provider to provide this training by January 2019.
