Educational Management And Leadership

Advanced Diploma in Education

Introduction:

Many schools countrywide experience high failure rates which in most cases could be attributed to ineffective management and leadership styles.

Besides, the turnover of educational leaders who are promoted to management positions at regional and school levels; the establishment of new schools which require effective school management; and the increase in demand of the advanced knowledge in educational management and leadership, has necessitated the revision of the existing programme from a Specialised Diploma into an Advanced Diploma to make it more responsive to the needs of the clientele.

Junior Primary Education

Introduction:

Rationale

Over the years an insufficient numbers of teachers have been trained for pre-primary and junior primary education. This shortage of qualified teachers at the foundation level of the education system is seen as one of the factors preventing Namibian learners from achieving the expected levels of numeracy and literacy in the early years of their schooling. This hampers learn ers in later phases of education. An investment in improving our learning foundations seems to be well justified in terms of long-term benefits to learners and the country, and the obvious shortage of qualified teachers serving at this level of the education system.

Purpose

This programme is designed to respond to a gap in the demand and supply of qualified junior primary teachers in Namibian schools. It will also address the requirements of the revised language policy of the Ministry of Education particularly focusing on equal access to home language instruction.

The intention of the three year level 6 Diploma in Junior Primary Education is to educate prospective full time and in-service teachers to implement the Namibian National Curriculum and the school syllabuses using theory-driven and
research-based best practice pedagogy. Furthermore, the teachers will be qualified to teach in English and a selected home- or sign language to meet the recommendations of the language policy for Namibia. The programme addresses the competencies of the National Professional Teacher Standards for Namibia (NPTS), as well as teacher education competencies of the African Union. The programme will be called Diploma in Junior Primary Education this is in line with the new Namibian National Curriculum. This will include training for the following phases: Pre-primary to Grade 3.
