Strengthen quality education for developing human capital for inclusive sustainable development using the SADC Care and Support for Teaching and Learning (CSTL) and Child and Youth Agency Frameworks (CYAF).
This SADC Policy Framework on Care and Support for Teaching and Learning (CSTL) has been developed to support Member States to strengthen and harmonise their education policies and programmes so that they may ensure comparable and sustainable care and support for teaching and learning of vulnerable learners throughout the region. The formulation of the Policy Framework has been informed by and draws on the history and shared wisdom of Member States, a number of which have already taken steps towards systematisation of care and support for teaching and learning. The Framework seeks to formulate a “road map” for future action by Member States that draws on their past successes and the challenges that have promoted or inhibited care and support in the region; it provides a platform for future development of policies and laws premised on Member States learning from each other, emulating successes that have already been achieved,
This guide was developed by MIET AFRICA to guide SADC Ministries of Education and their schools in taking the necessary steps to build schools that are rights-based, inclusive and supportive. It is intended to support schools to operationalise the SADC Policy Framework on Care and Support for Teaching and Learning (CSTL), and provides answers to the why, how, what and who questions related to building the foundations of CSTL schools. The process has been informed by MIET AFRICA’s extensive experience gained over many years in the
implementation of CSTL programmes across the SADC region. MIET AFRICA extends its gratitude to Save the Children International and the Swiss Agency for
Development and Cooperation for providing financial support for the development of the guide. Download the guide here.
The report includes a road map for planning to build and maintain a CSTL school. A CSTL school is a rights-based, inclusive school that ensures that every child—especially the most marginalized—receives a quality education that unlocks their full potential as an agent of sustainable development. The goal is that every school in the SADC region becomes a CSTL school that provides transformational, quality, inclusive education to all, especially the most marginalized, and builds the human capital needed for sustainable, inclusive development.
