CASME’s vision is “To be a world class centre for changing learners lives through Quality and Innovative Mathematics and Science Education.”

CASME’s mission statement is: “To provide quality teacher professional development opportunities for mathematics and science education in under-resourced and rural schools in South Africa to improve learning outcomes.”

CASME sees its education development intervention as a holistic one. Each programme must provide a foundation for, or build on existing programmes. Formal courses for example cannot be wholly successful unless the very real problem of insufficient resources faced by educators on a day to day basis, is tackled. Likewise, simply erasing a need for resources cannot succeed without the skills and knowledge to use them.
