Tshikululu managed the FNB Primary Education Programme (PEP) three year pilot which involved 20 primary schools in the Free State across two districts (10 in Lejweleputswa and 10 in Fezile Dabi) and 17 primary schools in KwaZulu-Natal (9 in Umgungundlovu and 8 in Umlazi).
Khulisa Management Services (Pty) Ltd (Khulisa) was commissioned to conduct the end-term evaluation.
Overall, the data shows that the PEP clearly had impact in most programme objective areas. However, the absence of credible learner assessment data reduces the ability to be definitive about impact of the programme on learner performance.
