Anglo American South Africa Education Programme

The AASA Education Programme, an initiative of the Anglo American Sustainability Strategy, was launched in 2018. The programme focuses on early childhood learning and a whole school development (WSD) approach to facilitate a significant positive impact on the educational outcomes of children in at least 100 ECD sites, 70 primary schools and 30 secondary schools local to the Anglo American operations in Mpumalanga, Limpopo and the Northern Cape.

In 2019, work focused on two key components:

  1. Whole School Development (WSD): Programme design and detailed theory of change for primary and secondary schools.
  2. Early Childhood Development (ECD): Situational analysis in 200 ECD sites and design of the ECD component.

Learner and teacher assessment forms part of the monitoring strategy of the programme and in 2019 learner and teacher assessments were successfully developed, piloted and analysed.
