Self-Leadership Tutorial Program
Since 2014 we have been running a Self-Leadership Tutorial program at Protea Glen Secondary School, Soweto. The aim of the program is to equip learners with self-leadership and academic skills so that they can pursue careers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
The program has been structured so that learners from Grade 9 to Grade 12 are supported, but the interventions at each Grade are of a different nature. The emphasis of the Program at Grade 9 is to create excitement about STEM careers in order to encourage learners to study Mathematics and Physical Sciences at Grade 10. In Grade 10 the focus is to build the right foundations for future careers by focussing mainly on creating a solid knowledge base in Mathematics as well as a good work ethic. At Grade 11 level more focus is placed on the Physical Sciences and on hands-on experiments, as well as giving guidance on university/college entrance requirements. Grade 12 learners are supported through a mentoring program to help them achieve good matric results.
