PROTEC is a leading South African non-profit organization, operating nationally in the field of
STEM education since 1982.
We run an excellence programme for disadvantaged learners that have the potential and the right attitude to change the course of their lives.
From Grade 10 to Grade 12, where we provide Saturday school and vacation classes in STEM subjects, career guidance, as well as teacher support and materials.
We mentor our learners for 7 years post matric through their tertiary studies and into their first years in the working world as our PROTEC Alumni.
As young professionals in the workplace, our PROTEC Alumni give back to PROTEC as role models and life coaches, inspiring and motivating the next generation to fulfill their dreams.
Workshops, school support visits and materials for Mathematics, Physical Sciences and English teachers in the FET phase.
PROTEC addresses a very relevant need in the South African economy. Very few previously disadvantaged scholars pass or even write matric Mathematics and Science (key gateway subjects) and therefore don’t have the opportunity to pursue careers in engineering, science and technology – skills so vital to our developing country.
A proud history (since 1982) of measureable results in the field of STEM education:
PROTEC successfully tracks learners from Grade 10 throughout their tertiary studies and into their careers
PROTEC learners are in the capable hands of highly qualified and experienced teachers who provide a holistic approach and go beyond the call of duty to help them reach their full potential
