Uplands Outreach is a dynamic educational non-profit organisation currently operating in four school circuits in Mpumalanga, for maximum focus and impact. We were established in 1994 by Uplands in order to boost educational outcomes in rural Mpumalanga, South Africa.
We work collaboratively at the circuit level, and with school leaders, teachers and pupils in an empirically proven approach known as ‘systemic alignment’. We track impact over time, not just outputs, and we are committed to continuous learning.
The Uplands Outreach team is passionate about our work and is 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.
Uplands Outreach in a Nutshell!
Uplands Outreach was founded in 1994 to boost achievement levels in our partner schools in Mpumalanga so that all children can benefit from the transformative and life-long power of a quality education.
