A flagship project of the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE), SSIP is the largest of the programmes managed by Sci-Bono. The programme provides supplementary tuition for Grade 8 – 12 learners in 439 Gauteng high schools that have been prioritised as needing additional tuition.
Facilitated over weekends and holidays, the Grade 12 tuition sessions cover the following 10 subjects that have most contributed to the poor results in the priority schools: Mathematics, Maths Literacy, History, Life Sciences, Business Studies, Economics, Accounting, Physical Science, English First Additional Language and Geography. Residential and walk-in examination revision camps will be facilitated for Grade 12’s in October 2012. The SSIP programme has been seen as largely responsible for the improvements in the 2010 and 2011 Gauteng Grade 12 results.
Grade 10 and 11 learners will receive exam preparation support in Mathematics, Accounting and Physical Science during the October holidays. Supplementary tuition programmes in Mathematics, Economic Management Sciences and Natural Sciences were provided for Grade 8 and 9 learners during the April Holidays.
