The Brainline Syllabus

Brainline is registered with the IEB and therefore uses an IEB-aligned curriculum – complying with the statutory requirements of the CAPS curriculum while adapting the content and assessment to focus on critical and creative thinking, and problem solving rather than rote learning. This ensures a high educational standard and is comparable to accredited international curricula such as Cambridge, preparing learners for the real demands of the post-school environment.
