|dc.description.abstract||The title of this study is "Guidelines for a Traffic Safety Education Curriculum for
training of Grade R school facilitators". The purpose of the study was to suggest
guidelines to compile a curriculum for the training of facilitators to teach the Grade R
learners Traffic Safety Education (TSE). The study was carried out in the Eastern
Cape Province of South Africa. The target groups were facilitators of pre-primary
schools and lecturers from Universities, Technikons and Colleges of Education that
were involved with the training of educators/facilitators.
The questions that emanated from the analysis of the problem were posed in 1.2.1
to 1.2.4. Also, the aims of the study were stated in 1.3.1 to 1.3.4.
The principal method of gathering information for the study was by means of questionnaires
as discussed in 1.4.2, 5.3 and 5.4 respectively.
The data collected was analysed and discussed in sections 5.5 and 5.6 respectively.
It was found that both facilitators and lecturers stressed the need for teaching TSE
in pre-schools and schools. They also acknowledged that this vital aspect of
education is lacking in South African schools. As such, it is a good move to aspire
for the inclusion of TSE in the training of facilitators/educators.
It was therefore suggested that facilitators/educators should be trained (through in-service
training and teacher training programmes in colleges etc) to teach TSE to
learners. Further studies need to be done to check the extent to which the
suggested guidelines are useful to facilitators' tasks.||
