Improving the Quality of Teaching & Learning
The Western Cape Primary Science Programme (PSP) is a teacher in-service training and support organisation that has been working since 1985 to address the inequalities in education in South Africa.
The PSP is a centre for excellence in primary education and works to improve the quality of teaching and learning in South African primary schools. PSP projects focus on the critical fields of Mathematics & Numeracy, Natural Sciences & Technology, Environment, Language & Literacy development and Social Sciences.
The PSP offices are based at the Edith Stephens Wetland Park (ESWP), in the heart of the Cape Flats, situated close to many of the schools that we serve. The wetland is a unique conservation site that has been developed into a public park by the City of Cape Town in partnership with the South African Biodiversity Institute (SANBI).
A core staff of highly skilled and experienced education specialists are implementing PSP projects in the most disadvantaged communities in the Western Cape, providing ongoing and comprehensive support to primary school teachers.
In addition PSP develops quality teaching materials and resources.
