Over 400 principals, educators, parents, districts, unions and official representatives are in attendance. The goal of the Consultative process is to provide feedback on how stakeholders respond to the idea of curriculum strengthening as well as the SA competency framework. Under the Save the Children South Africa Bridging the Gap programme, the JET research team is conducting research related to teacher development and curriculum reform.
