Our courses include:

The GED Academy™

The GED Academy™ offers self-directed, cloud-based learning content to prepare students for the GED® test. The adaptive learning technology combines the subject areas into a personalised lesson plan that challenges students and keeps them engaged and motivated. The GED Academy™ is designed to accelerate a student’s learning with its personalised lesson plan, which is tailored to each student’s knowledge level. Students become familiar with how to answer interactive questions which are randomised so students can retake the test. The practice questions have been designed to be as close as possible to the real GED® test, using the same weighting to score results. For each missed question, the assessment prescribes a mini-lesson plan.



(can be considered as a pre-GED course)

The TABE course comprises of English and Mathematics. The subjects are at a very basic level and can assist students, especially students who have less than a Grade 10 CAPS qualification, with covering some ground-level work that will benefit them moving forward.

This course enables younger students, who aim to study the GED, the ability to solidify concepts before they begin their GED journey.

Some of the later content begins to overlap with the GED course however we have calculated that there are about 25 hours of course content that does not overlap. The language touches on Argumentative Writing basics, but does not intimidate the student with formal essays.

The suggested age for this Pre-GED course is 15 and 16-year-olds.
