South Africa’s largest home education curriculum provider has launched a brand-new Impaq Online School at a time when demand for distance education continues to grow rapidly. For 20 years, Impaq has been a leader in structured homeschooling in South Africa. During this period, more than 169 000 learners have used their educational services.
With the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic, demand for their homeschooling offering — which follows the CAPS curriculum and caters for grade R to grade 12 learners — has accelerated, with record numbers of families switching to this form of education in the last 18 months.
Amid this backdrop, Impaq has embarked on taking schooling to the next level by launching a fully catered-for online school for English- and Afrikaans-speaking learners.
Welcome to the Impaq Online School
The introduction of the Impaq Online School is a continuation of Impaq’s dedication to providing excellent education to distance learners. Admissions to the online school opened officially on 1 September 2021, with the school set to cater to grade seven to 11 learners in 2022. Plans are in place to expand the offering to other grades from 2023.
While their traditional homeschooling offering sees parents taking on most of the teaching, the online school will allow parents to have their children attend online classes led by highly qualified teachers. The knowledgeable teachers will:
- facilitate classes throughout the day,
- cover all material,
- build interpersonal relationships,
- track and encourage learner progress, and
- answer any questions in real-time.
Class sizes are capped at 30 learners per class, allowing for an individualised and social learning experience.
