In terms of educational standards, we follow the CAPS Curriculum as prescribed by the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE), in addition to having an Individualised Education Programme (IEP) for each child specifically focused on his or her area of need.

We offer an academic supportive environment for learners and therefore have small classes which enable us to address each learner’s individual needs. Our teachers receive weekly in-service training in order to be proficient in dealing with attention problems and any other learning disorders.

Each learner at the School of Transformation follows an Individualised Education Programme (IEP) to meet his or her unique individual needs. The IEP creates an opportunity for teachers, parents IEP pic 600x450and the learners to work together to improve overall results in Maths, English and Afrikaans. An IEP is the cornerstone of a quality education for each child with barriers to learning. Reading and Mathematical assessments are conducted to measure progress and results are then used to adjust the level of IEP accordingly. Concentration assessments are conducted as the need arises to evaluate the visual and auditory attention of each learner. Parents are notified and offered the correct guidance to deal with concentration problems.

The IEP is used as an enrichment programme to enhance numeracy and literacy.
