We constantly measure and track our performance as we are fully accountable to our donors and we strive for excellence and continuous improvement in everything we do.

The success of our work at PROTEC is measured by:

1. Matric Results

PROTEC consistently delivers Matric and Bachelor pass rates that exceed the national statistics year on year.


2. Bursaries Awarded

About 20% of PROTEC learners get awarded bursaries due to their superior performance, many of these through Protec's corporate funders

3. Graduates

PROTEC is developing a growing database of PROTEC Post School Students who have successfully completed their tertiary education. We intend to maintain contact with these past pupils well into their careers - the PROTEC Chairman was actually a PROTEC learner himself and member of the PROTEC Alumni. We survey these graduates to assess the impact that PROTEC has made in their lives and we encourage these graduates to stay involved with PROTEC as valuable role models to the next generations coming through the Programme.

4. Work Placements

Many of our Post School students have started their careers at some of our funding organizations which is very encouraging. As with our graduates above, we aim to continue to maintain contact with our Post School Students and track their careers. These are the PROTEC Alumni and the fruits of our efforts! Due to the considerable impact that PROTEC has made on their lives, they regularly take time out of their busy schedules to give back to PROTEC where possible.

"To this day, I’m grateful for the precious opportunity I received from PROTEC during my high school education. Doors of opportunity that I would not have imagined possible became available to me. Through the help of PROTEC, I could improve my understanding of Mathematics and Physical Sciences which helped me gain access to higher education institutions and the fulfilment of my dreams."

"I was fortunate to join PROTEC in Grade 10 and got the opportunity to participate in events like the Technology Olympiad. I learnt that if you put in the extra effort, it comes with great rewards. Great teachers also increase the learners ability to succeed and PROTEC teachers produce stars with their humble abilities and willing hearts. PROTEC also equipped me with interview skills that landed me a bursary with Tongaat Hulett. Thank you PROTEC"

"At my high school I was one of only 2 students who registered for higher grade Mathematics. As we only had standard grade teachers at school, PROTEC was my only hope. Thanks to PROTEC I obtained a B symbol for both Maths and Science which granted me admission to the faculty of engineering at UKZN. I am proud to say that PROTEC revealed the potential in me."
