Results

Despite challenges of progressed learners, the PMDP schools demonstrated an improvement in G12 results which was 6,8% higher than the provincial average.

“The model of the program is very, very strong… a great strength is working in partnerships – we have been given the opportunity to work side by side on this program… we began to speak from one script. There has been a deep sense of being solution-driven here. The program has had a very strong research base, which to us is a plus… When reflecting, we are looking at systemic capacity building that has been imparted.”

Dr. N Mthethwa -  Director: Teacher Development and Governance, Senior DoE Official

“For the first time in this Province we have had the tools to monitor Curriculum…The PMDP training and coaching methodology is one of the tools at the disposal of the Department to eradicate dysfunctional schools.”

Mr. Mkhwanazi - Chief Director: Curriculum
