Annual Review

Africa A+ Schools is an organization that works to bring about change in the quality of education in South Africa.

The A+ Schools approach was imported from Oklahoma, USA, and initially piloted in Western Cape from 2014 to 2017 under the banner of Africa A+ Schools. The pilot showed that a variety of adaptations were necessary to accommodate the complex needs of South Africa’s poor communities.

Subsequently, in 2018, Africa A+ Schools moved its headquarters to Eastern Cape and, on behalf of a corporate funder, embarked on much needed work for schools in the Kouga district (Humansdorp, Cape St Francis, Oyster Bay, Jeffreys Bay). 2019 saw Africa A+ Schools running a “needs analysis” to determine the specific requirements of 33 schools and to ensure that a training programme for teachers and schools would not be yet another unsustainable intervention. A+ Schools stands for pedagogical quality and works hand-in-hand with communities to ensure that there is a relationship of trust and a long-term shift in thinking.

2020 brought with it the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic that would markedly impact on how Early Childhood Centres operate and how A+ would do their training. Although the impact of the pandemic has been profound, A+ has risen to the challenge and has continued to deliver excellence and inspiration.
