Calibre understands the challenges for many students in mainstream learning environments. Anxiety, fear of failure, learning in large classes, social issues, bullying and loss of identity are the realities for a growing number of young people. Calibre provides a tailor-made solution for each child in an environment that celebrates uniqueness and diversity. No homework. No uniform. No hair rules.

Calibre is a vision made manifest and is powered by LisaAnn Haynes, a committed and qualified teacher and a mother of two children, and Adam Dobson, a qualified and experienced educationalist. LisaAnn and Adam believe that ‘school’ can be done differently and young people do not have to be defined by the schooling system

Community, Growth, Learning, and Integrity are the bedrock of Calibre’s success and every decision made is exclusively about what is in the best interests of each individual student. Calibre’s flexibility, experience and commitment ensure that each child receives the programme that is right for them. Calibre strives to provide a learning environment in which young people want to flourish and offer the best they can, whatever that may be.

Curriculum Provider

Centres providing home education tuition (up to Grade 9) or Post-compulsory phase tuition (Grades 10 -12) cannot generate their own material and all students must have access to materials compliant with the national curriculumʼs guidelines and imperatives. Students at Calibre are enrolled with Path-Finder Curriculum Services. This is an Educational Materials Provider and ensures students and parents in Grades 4-12 have all the tools and materials they need to obtain accredited, CAPS compliant results, accepted by schools in South Africa.

The Curriculum Provider, Path-Finder, is responsible for setting the broad schedule of work and assessment for each Grade, in line with the National Curriculum, and CAPS (Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements). Path-Finder has developed materials and programmes which are congruent with the specific needs of the Calibre tutoring model. Calibre Education is responsible to ensure each young person has a unique programme which allows them to work through the material in small groups, at their own pace, to ensure that all the content has been covered and that the young person is confident they have a clear understanding of the material. Calibre Education manages all assessments and marks and submits all requirements to Pathfinder and the examination body.

Calibreʼs tutors augment the material received by individually focused methodology; the use of IT, fieldtrips and a creative and dynamic approach to learning in small groups.

The Examination Body

Grade 10-12 students, who are part of the Post-compulsory schooling phase (which is available when turning 15 years of age) write the examinations through the South African Comprehensive Assessment Institute (SACAI) and obtain a Matric Certificate which is indistinguishable from those obtained through mainstream schooling. SACAI has provisional accreditation with Umalusi (the countryʼs quality assurance body in education), and they are a recognised provider of examination and assessment services, and manage the Continuous Assessment, Portfolio and Examination requirements of Calibreʼs Grade 10, 11 and 12 students , ensuring that all National Senior Certificate requirements are satisfied.

Calibre has had a long and successful relationship with SACAI and hundreds of Matric students have successfully passed through Calibre’s doors with a recognized Matric certificate to go on to study in South Africa or abroad.
