This paper discusses the Khanyisa Programme, an initiative in KwaZulu-Natal,
South Africa, where learners from under-resourced schools are supported by
teachers and high achievers in Grade 11 and 12 from a previously advantaged
state school under apartheid. A qualitative, evaluative study was undertaken to
identify key elements in the ongoing success of the programme and collect
participant suggestions for improvement. The findings, discussed within the
framework of self-efficacy theory, identified enormous gains by Khanyisa
learners, leading to vastly improved career prospects.
