The shared curriculum initiative encompasses preparatory school curriculum development and review in Central and KwaZulu-Natal regions, co-ordinated by teachers and heads of schools. Each region holds subject-specific cluster meetings and Grade 7 learners at participating schools write the annual Shared Assessment Tasks (SATs).
The SATs are developed by a group of teachers and currently available for Mathematics, English, Afrikaans, SeSotho and isiZulu. SATs results are collated centrally and made available to heads of participating schools to assist in their strategic planning and school improvement strategies.
Attached are the Central Region shared assessment cluster meeting dates for 2018 (updated 26 February 2018). Further information on each meeting will be distributed closer to the time, but schools interested in participating should in the interim please diarise the dates.
