"In the Bulungula Incubator IiTablet Tshomiz programme we are enhancing the quality of our programme using online learning aids that can improve the quality of the learning experience in under-resourced schools. We are modelling and implementing a replicable “technology for quality education” programme that makes excellent online programmes widely available for a deep rural setting where learners face the most challenging conditions in the country. We believe that through this, we can effectively address the skills gap in Mathematics and as the programme grows, in English too.

We already have over 500 learners from two schools in the area, from Grade 1-9, accessing the programme weekly during a facilitated session. We are adding 100 learners a month and aim to have four schools on the programme by the end of next year. While developing the IiTablet Tshomiz programme we are also compiling a toolkit for sharing with other organisations."

Screen Shot 2019 04 01 at 161053We exist to diagnose and remediate cumulative learning gaps that build up through a learner’s education. We do this by creating scalable and impactful resources including highly detailed diagnostic assessments and personalised, targeted catch-up curriculum that can be used in a range of contexts.

 We wish to see all learners, regardless of their background, realise their academic potential. By placing special focus on Mathematics and, in future, Physical Science, Reflective Learning is opening the doors to STEM careers.

"The Engen Maths and Science School programme evolved out of the Engen Saturday Schools initiative, launched in the mid-1980s. It exposes learners from grades 10 to 12 - who show potential in maths and science - to high-quality teachers and educational materials.
Engen Maths and Science Schools matric pass rate for the past 5 years has been over 90%, which is well above the national average."

Liberty’s key focus area remains education. The company supports initiatives that follow a lifelong trajectory, targeting each life stage of a learner with the aim of improving their performance in mathematics, physical science and literacy. A strong emphasis is placed on mathematics as, through this subject, learners gain the problem-solving skills that are both necessary and marketable in today’s technically oriented market place.

  • One such initiative supported by Liberty is the Kutlwanong Centre for Maths, Science and Technology.
  • Liberty supports two Kutlwanong centres: Ponego Centre in Katlehong, Gauteng; and Sibusisiwe Centre in umbumbulu, KwaZulu-Natal. Both centres cater for 600 grade 10 to 12 learners.
