Tshehetso ya Thuto Project

The Tshehetso ya Thuto Project (TYTP) is an intervention that was conceptualised by CUT in 2016, with the aim to improve teaching and learning as well as to support the drive towards quality education. Accordingly, the TYTP model seeks to adopt a multi-pronged approach- a comprehensive strategy that addresses education challenges from early childhood through to high school level. The importance of laying a solid foundation and inspiring learners’ interest for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics ( STEM) at an early age cannot be overemphasised. It is widely reported that learners who are exposed to STEM concepts from primary school tend to enjoy and gravitate towards these subjects in high school and tertiary. Accordingly, through the TYTP, CUT endeavours to improve the performance and attainment of learners by providing extra tuition to grades 8 -11 learners. This project, currently in its second year, is run on Saturdays at Dr Blok Secondary School in partnership with the Free State Department of Education. Plans are underway to expand the project to more schools in 2018.
