Our Story

Jurgens Basson started his professional journey as a teacher and later became a lecturer at the Rand Afrikaans University (now University of Johannesburg).   He started The Maths Centre – a private study centre – in 1989 offering additional Mathematics, Science and Accounting tuition to students in Gauteng.   In 2006 he established JB Education, a consulting company dedicated to help and improve education in South Africa.

Jurgens is the co-author of the Mind Action Series Mathematics textbooks (nationally approved by the Department of Basic Education) and received the highest ranking from the National panel amongst all other Mathematics textbooks. He was also part of the panel that developed the new CAPS curriculum, which was implemented in 2012.  His passion for education inspired him to initiate and establish learner development programs for disadvantaged learners across South Africa. He is currently rated as the best Mathematics consultant in South Africa because of his exceptional ability to train and empower teachers in Mathematics at primary, secondary and tertiary level.

Our passion is to provide the best possible training for teachers and learners in Mathematics, Mathematical Literacy, Accounting, Science, English and Life Orientation. We also assist previously disadvantaged schools with infrastructure development and conduct school management coaching.   JB Education designs training solutions for clients, teachers, schools and learners. All our training solutions are custom-designed to maximize the impact of the training on our beneficiaries. We empower our beneficiaries to ensure that the learning experience continues long after they have left the classroom/boardroom.

He is also used extensively by all the different Education Departments to train Mathematics teachers and learners nationally in English and Afrikaans.  JBC has conducted training in every province in the country and trained over 10 000+ educators and reached over 50 000+ learners nationally. We continue day-by-day to make the difference…
