Uplands Outreach works closely with our partner schools in the rural Insikazi school circuit in Mpumalanga, South Africa. Our vision is to boost performance and raise educational achievement for all children. For maximum impact, we work in one school circuit only, at leader, educator, and learner levels.
The Uplands Outreach team is passionate about our work and are committed to long-standing relationships with our programme participants. This consultative, collaborative approach has resulted in a number of successes that are proven over time. We utilise evidence-based practices to guide our activities.
Our achievements include the holistic School Leadership for Excellence programme, the continued professional development programmes for teachers, the SMILE conversational literacy programme, the Mathematics Proficiency programme, the Digital Literacy programme, and the refurbishment and workflow support of the Insikazi school circuit office. We also implement several ‘quick wins’ projects with our partner schools, which provide both practical and psychological support to our programme participants.
Reach out… our community consists of more than just scenery, and extends beyond the beautiful Uplands campus. Talk to us about Uplands Outreach and how you can get involved.
