Learning Programme Guidelines
« on: August 22, 2015, 12:11:01 PM »
To ensure achievement of national standards set by the Revised National Curriculum Statement, policy guidelines for relevant and appropriate Learning Programmes will be developed at national level in collaboration with provinces. These guidelines will emphasise the principle of integrated learning and the achievement of an optimal relationship between integration across learning areas and conceptual progression from grade to grade. The National Education Policy Act (1996, section 3, paragraph 4) empowers the Minister of Education to determine, among other things, such a national policy guideline for the development of Learning Programmes.

These policy guidelines will provide information and guidance on:
- Integration within and across learning areas
- Clustering of assessment standards
- Relationships between learning outcomes
 -Time allocation
- Assessment
- Barriers to learning
 -Designing a Learning Programme
- Policy and legislation
 -Training, development and delivery
 -Resourcing and support
 -Planning and organisation

These guidelines will be applied within the context of existing policy and legislative frameworks such as the six White Papers on Education, the National Education Policy Act (1996), the South African Schools Act (1996) and the Employment of Educators Act (1998). Learning Programme guidelines will offer a framework to address specific learner and contextual needs.
