Targeting Talent Programme TTP

The Targeting Talent Programme (TTP), in its 12th year of implementation (in 2018), is a pre-university enrichment programme which aims to increase the academic, social and psychological preparation of academically talented learners, from both well-resourced and socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds for admission to South African universities. High school learners from Grades 10 and 11 are selected from various schools across South Africa to attend the programme until their final Grade 12 year in school.

In addition, SETMU also provides an enrichment programme to Math and Science educators, from schools that participate in the TTP.

The Educator Enrichment Programme aims to upgrade the subject specific, subject-didactic and curriculum-specific knowledge of participating educators. Furthermore, by upgrading their technical dexterity, educators will be better equipped to create their own materials for learners. The programme also assists in the creation of professional learning communities amongst educators which will assist in the dissemination and generation of knowledge. It is envisaged that the educator enrichment programme will impact on the school through the training of mathematics and science educators from selected schools and generate knowledge.
