Teachers Learning Centre has developed a short leadership and management course specifically for ECD principals, managers and supervisors of ECD centres or pre-primary schools. This is an essential course for those who find themselves in a managerial or supervisory position but without the necessary business knowledge and skills to ensure that their centre or school is managed efficiently and effectively.
This course also provides a great opportunity if you are ‘entrepreneurial-minded’ and want to start your own ECD centre in your communities. However, it is important that you have the right academic background (i.e. minimum of a FETC: ECD Level 4 qualification), an understanding of business principles and the rules and regulations governing ECD centres to ensure that you provide a supportive and enabling environment for the children under your care.
Several modules in this training course cover some of the content material of the NQF 4 and 5 qualifications. If you don’t have these qualifications and wish to continue with further studies in ECD, you may apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Each applicant will be assessed on an individual basis in accordance with government policy.
