COMMISSIONED REPORT "OPTIONS FOR TALENTED LEARNERS FROM DISADVANTAGED BACKGROUNDS" PUBLISHED

The Centre for Development and Enterprise (CDE) commissioned JET Education Services to study some of the private sector initiatives aimed at assisting capable learners from disadvantaged backgrounds obtain university entrance passes in mathematics.

"Many learners from disadvantaged backgrounds capable of obtaining university entrance passes in mathematics do not do so either because their schools do not teach mathematics, or the tuition is inferior. In recent years the private sector has initiated a number of projects aimed at realising this potential. CDE commissioned JET Education Services to study some of these programmes in order to establish what makes them successful, and whether any of them could be taken to scale."
