The focus of intervention for Edupeg is on the most important element in the system - the teacher. Our team of 15 highly skilled and experienced teacher-mentors visit primary schools to mentor and support teachers in their classrooms. They use Edupeg mathematical resources as well as teaching techniques from the acclaimed “Teach Like A Champion” book to mentor and support teachers in the challenging environments in which they work. With sustained and meaningful support at this level of the education system, we can remediate some of the gaps that many of our teachers and learners are experiencing in the Foundation (Grade 1-3) and Intermediate Phases (Grade 4-6). The exercise of trying to change teaching practice becomes nearly impossible in later years, where the deficits are so great that any remediation is like pouring water into a bucket full of holes.
