Our History

The Maths Centre began in 1985 as a small outreach project from Auckland Park School under the directorship of Mrs. Patchitt. During the 80’s and early 90’s, facilitators extended their reach to Soweto to provide support for educators in learning computers and investigative Mathematics. Impressed by this, ESKOM funded a provincial project in Witbank, Mpumalanga.

In 1995, the organisation adopted the name “Maths Centre for Professional Teachers” or “MCPT” under the direction of Sharanjeet Shan, who continues to build the organisation ensuring that it maintains the level of education and services that have made The Maths Centre the reputable NPO that it is.

 

Our programs are building blocks for projects and are targeted towards both students and teachers alike. Our aims is to correct, restore and advance both teachers and students through a variety of programmes by utilising a various tools and resource

How We Work

Our primary objective is to equip teachers, learners and parents with learning materials and programs in order to develop a higher competency and performance in Mathematics, Science, Technology and Entrepreneurship education.

Our trainers are specialists in their specific subject and engage with Principals, Teachers and Students. Each project typically covers 10 schools in a close proximity so that each trainer can cover multiple schools in one day. This approach allows for participants to easily congregate for selected joint-workshops and events.

Each project typically consist of three key components:

Sponsor (donor)

The project will typically be named after the donor or organization that is covering the cost of the project. Eg. ABSA Maths FET.

Target and timeline

The target location is determined: Province, school, and audience. A project typically lasts for 3 years.

Programs

Projects consist of either one, or a combination of programs that are put together to achieve the project’s objectives.
