Joanne here. I come from a privileged background where I had access to all the academic support and extra-skills opportunities that I wanted growing up.
I’m a CA by qualification and my mom’s a teacher – so when I returned to South Africa after working abroad – I had a vision to bring affordable maths & science support to more learners across our high schools. As we grew, it became clear to me that there’s also a need at high school (and beyond) to provide access to high quality digital, technology and coding skills. And I wanted to make sure that these skills can be certified so our students have something extra on their CVs.
So far we’ve enrolled ~300 learners in our Microsoft Programming/Coding course, had over 1500 learners in our various programmes and tested over 16000+ Gr8-12 learners using our diagnostic assessment tool.
