Dear FET Mathematics and Physical Sciences learners!

It is under extraordinary conditions that we currently operate. Under normal circumstances SUNCEP would have held several learner programmes during this week. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, our March contact session has been postponed. These are very uncertain times, but we still need to act responsibly and try our utmost to keep up with the required academic pace. At this point, however we are called upon to think out of the box. To assist you in your efforts to keep practicing and mastering Mathematics and Physical Sciences,  please click on the image below (to download the full pdf document of this message)

​LE Acting Manager, SUNCEP

​​​​​​South Africa is in the midst of a mathematics and science education crisis that challenges all key role-players.​ 

SUNCEP is involved in several programmes that seek to provide learning enhancement programmes to learners who show potential to access tertiary education. These learners currently hail from the Northern and Western Cape.

Learners are given extra tuition by tutors who are selected in conjunction with the applicable provincial education department. These tuition sessions take place during the school holidays or on Saturdays when learners are given quality lessons in Mathematics, Natural and Physical Sciences.  ​Currently, Literacy is part of one of the interventions.

These lessons aim to help learners achieve excellent results in the National Senior Certificate, thus enabling them to access tertiary education.​​

The programmes that SUNCEP currently manage are listed in the table below.​
