Improving the Quality of Teaching & Learning

Welcome to the Primary Science Programme

The Primary Science Programme (PSP) is a trusted non-profit organisation recognised for our effective approaches to improving the quality of primary education in South Africa, particularly in under-resourced schools. We do this through the training and professional development of teachers.


In 2019, our project work reached 1 563 teachers and 105 764 children in 157 primary schools.

Together with our training courses to help build teacher content knowledge and skills, our in- classroom support, coaching and mentorship critically encourages good teaching strategies and promotes quality teaching and learning in the key subjects of Maths, Science & Environment and Language.

Our quality classroom resources and materials enhance teaching and learning.


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic teachers are in greater need of support than ever before. PSP responded to this by maintaining regular contact with teachers in 2020 and transforming our training courses to continue online, keeping their practical and interactive nature, with concepts demonstrated using concrete objects.


We anticipate using a blended model of teacher support during 2021, working with teachers online and/or face-to-face, as determined by the need.
