Department of Basic Education (DBE) protocol development

In 2017, SGS Consulting was requested by the DBE to convene a number of civil society organisations to work with it to review, develop and refine education protocols on a voluntary basis. The protocols refer to sexual violence in schools, teenage pregnancy, corporal punishment and discrimination in schools. Over 12 organisations stepped forward such as the South African Human Rights Commission, Section 27, Equal Education, Equal Education Law Centre and other.

SGS Consulting played a pivotal role in bridging the gap between civil society organisations and the DBE through the process of protocol development. System leaders within education and parents tend not to be clear about their roles and responsibilities, about human rights in the school setting and legal recourse when dealing with issues of sexual violence, teenage pregnancy and discrimination in schools. The protocols are designed to address these issues. The protocol on discrimination in schools is currently being developed.

    Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox.
    Outstanding Blog!

    you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad
    so any assistance is very much appreciated.

    in our community. Your site provided us with useful info to

    You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people have to read this and understand this side of your story.

    I was surprised you’re not more popular because you surely possess
    the gift.

  10. Excellent website you have here but I was wanting
    to know if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same
    topics discussed here? I’d really love to be a part of online
    community where I can get responses from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Kudos!

    use a little something from other sites.
