Early Childhood Development(ECD)

National ECD CoP Meeting Highlights 20 May 2021

The CoP focused on the Project for Inclusive Early Childhood Care and Education (PIECCE), which is a multi-stakeholder partnership between a number of universities and Resource and Training Organisations (RTOs) who developed a framework for NQF Level 6 and 7 qualifications. The project aims to increase access to qualifications for ECCE educators working in Birth to Four, thereby helping to professionalise the sector. Sheila Drew and Hasina Ebrahim, Ruby Motaung and Candy Goodlad showcased the outputs of the project which include a standardised programme framework and set of support materials amongst others, lessons learned from the project and partnerships borne out of this project.
