As part of its commitment to improve the socio-economic conditions of its beneficiary communities, SIOC-cdt invested a great deal of resources in the provision of quality education. Between 2012 and 2014 SIOC-cdt funded a large-scale education programme in its beneficiary regions, with the objective of improving the performance of learners in the National Senior Certificate (NSC or Matric) examination.
The objective of the programme was to improve NSC pass rates in all the SIOC-cdt regions, including JTG, ZF Mcgawu, and Thabazimbi.
More specifically, it sought to improve the outcomes in four target subjects, namely Life Science, Physical Science, Mathematics, and English.
