Thank you for visiting this page. As somebody who is concerned with schools, we would like to tell you how we can help you.

We understand that although schools often do their best to educate learners, they face an uphill struggle. Large class sizes, lack of resources, weak support from parents and a lack of funding all contribute to make the role of a school very challenging.

As a school, there is barely enough time, capacity and budget to guide learners through their current curriculum, without having to find more to spend to correct learners who are behind. Yet those learners must catch up to the level they should be at. If they do not they will slow down the progress of the whole class, and make more work for everybody.

The good news is that siyaJabula siyaKhula is here to help you. We have interventions and resources that we can share with you, and a way of finding more people to help you.



Our organisation works alongside schools and school governing bodies to assist learners without drawing on a school’s people or resources. As the picture shows, siyaJabula siyaKhula works next to a school and its teachers to help deliver the curriculum.

We do this through specially designed interventions and with teaching aids and resources. We have education specialists who can solve problems and find solutions, and we have training interventions to help teachers.

We work with each school to select unemployed parents from the community, and we train and pay the parents to deliver intervention our lessons. These lessons are specially designed so that parents can give the lessons even though they are not teachers.

We assess all learners at the beginning of the course of interventions, and we use this information to identify common problems. We then supply the school and the teachers with solutions to these common problems, so that the problems are solved for good.

The learner assessments are also used to group the learners so that they can get the maximum benefit from the interventions. Where learners are seen to have bigger than usual difficulties, extra remedial work is given to the learners who need it.

Regular assessments are carried out during the intervention to monitor progress, and detailed reports are available to the school.

All learner intervention material is supplied to the learners, so no learner is left behind because of a lack of resources.

siyaJabula siyaKhula also develops teaching aids and resources to help the learning process. These materials are circulated through the school, so that even schools who do not have enough resources can get the benefits.

We would love to work with you, and we thank you for your support.
