In addition to the above, we have developed and consistently strengthened our partnership with the Brainwave organisation, offering subject choice and career guidance to learners in Grades 9, and further study and career guidance to learners in Grades 11 and/or 12.

Since its inception, STEP has been implemented in well over 100 schools across five provinces, in partnerships with our funders and the relevant provincial education department officials.
