CasmeINTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND

The Centre for the Advancement of Science and Mathematics Education (CASME) is a non-profit education development agency that strives to improve the quality of mathematics and science education. It achieves this through the professional development of educators and the provision of educational resources to historically disadvantaged communities.

Founded in 1985 the aim of the organisation from the start was to address systemic imbalances in mathematics and science education.

The organisation possesses a wealth of experience and expertise in teacher professional development and implements a range of interventions in partnership with government, corporate social investment programmes, universities and national development initiatives, amongst others.

CASME’s key focus is on the advancement of mathematics and science teachers’ subject competence and teaching skills in South African schools. From its inception, the organisation has provided in-service training to maths and science teachers mainly from poorly resourced and rural schools, while learners receive educational support through a number of tailored programmes.
