The Maths Centre is the premier destination for sustainably improving the quality of maths, science and technology education and education outcomes from Grade 1 to Grade 12 in South Africa. The Maths Centre focuses on teaching teachers were substantial gaps have arisen so that they can get on with the business of becoming good to great leaders. It is our strong belief backed by renowned international research (see below) that the most powerful key to circumventing the education crisis in South Africa lies at the teacher level. You will receive world class training, challenges that will sharpen your capabilities forever.
Maths Centre works with 1000s of young people each year, facilitating their thinking, growth and development towards gaining advantages in a context that rarely recognises its youth. And yet we watch so many of them carve and create a future for themselves with enthusiasm, foresight and discipline against so many odds. When I look and listen to these amazing young people, I rejoice in the future. My hope for them is that their university tutors will recognise the value that these learners bring to the higher education institutions. That alongside academic knowledge, the learning institutions will provide opportunities for learning to push the envelope intelligently, to shape into leadership positions that our country so desperately needs.
