OUR SUBSIDIARIES

As we seek to build an enviable reputation and become key players in the industry, we intend to increase the assets and investments of our company by supporting the growth of our subsidiaries.

EDUSCIMAT

EduSciMat (Pty) Ltd, is wholly owned by Ntsu e Ntsho Group. It is recognised as one of the leading e -learning companies in South Africa.

EduSciMat was born out of the need to support the government in remedying the challenges experienced by the Education system, particularly in the areas of Maths and Science.

Investing in Maths and Science was one of the best decisions we ever made. Our aim is to develop innovative solutions that contribute to the improvement of quality education.

Good knowledge and understanding of Maths and Science is an essential prerequisite to many professions, yet the assimilation and comprehension of those subjects are more challenging due to the abstract nature of their content.

To make a contribution toward the improvement of the skills level of these disciplines, we worked closely with the Department of Basic Education to develop innovative education solutions that can enhance and simplify how Maths and Science are taught in schools.

Since inception, EduSciMat has installed over 700 Maths Labs in the Free State and started installing another 489 Maths Labs in the North West province.

Benefits of EduSciMat's Maths & Science Laboratories

  • The Maths & Science Lab project through its Concrete Pictorial and Abstract (CPA) methodology empowers teachers with pedagogic, technical skills and knowledge in Maths & Science.
  • To date, more than 1 000 teachers have been trained and capacitated.
  • Promotes understanding, learning and reasoning using concrete objects.
  • Improves confidence through learning by doing.
  • Makes the learning experience joyful and improves the quality of teaching and learning.
  • Contribution to the improvement of Annual National Assessment Results.

The installation of Maths & Science laboratories contributed to Job Creation

  • Over 475 jobs were created since the inception of the Free State Project (300 permanent and the remainder contractual).

SMME Development

  • 33 black-owned companies were empowered (contractors and suppliers) through the Free State and North West Maths & Science Lab projects.

  • Empowering teachers to master content learned in their initial training as well as meet the training needs as outlined by the Department of Basic Education.
  • Enabling teachers to integrate our Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract (CPA) methodology in their teaching - through exploration, manipulation, and performing experiments that enable learners to discover their own solutions.
