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 for Grade 4-7 teachers and Grade 7 pupils 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.
Each SATs subject, as well as several other subjects, offer annual cluster meetings for teachers. The 2022 Central Region subject cluster meeting dates (updated 26 November 2021) are available below.
Further information on each meeting will be distributed closer to the time, but schools interested in participating should in the interim please diarise these dates.
