Our Story | Grades R to 12 Learner Resources | Impaq Education

Our History

Impaq’s journey began in 2002 when the need for a solution and service provider to home education (also known as homeschooling) learners and parents were identified. We started with only 400 learners and by 2008 we reached 3 800 learners, a growth of almost 70% per year. By 2012, over 5 300 learners were registered with Impaq. The year 2012 also marked a new phase in our journey when PSG became the main shareholder of Impaq. Since then, significant time and effort have been invested to modernise our lesson materials and services, ensuring that we offer products and services that truly add value to the learner’s education journey. In 2019, we reached an impressive milestone of over 17 800 learners using our lesson materials, resources and services across Southern Africa. Impaq’s products are presented by more than 800 tutors, countrywide and we’ve successfully introduced our offering to schools, making a difference to children’s lives, daily.

Our Future

We have embarked on the next stage in our journey, aiming to make a significant contribution to education in South Africa, through reaching 100 000 learners by 2020. To achieve this, we need innovative and accessible solutions, committed partners and a stronger brand. We have transformed our brand to one that relates to all South Africans. A brand that stands for quality and value with a proven track record. A brand that you can be proud of. A brand for the future.
