Improving the Quality of Teaching & Learning 021 691 9039

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.


Our project work reached 2 733 teachers from 553 primary schools in 2022, benefitting around 110 000 children.


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.


During the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic we developed our online capacities and transformed our training and support to using a blended model of online and/or face-to-face support, as determined by need. This has allowed us to reach many more teachers across all nine provinces of South Africa.
