"PurpleZA has revolutionized the thinking of our teaching staff. From basic skills development of our teachers to inquiry-based pedagogy, the platform has allowed our teachers to develop at their own pace in a safe, non-threatening environment while at the same time challenging those that are ready to take the leap into the great unknown. There is now a buzz in our staffroom as teachers talk about their PurpleZA courses and the lessons learned. Our children are loving their learning and the rewards are clear to see. Engagement has gone up and classroom management has minimized dramatically. Signing up with PurpleZA really has been our greatest success of 2022."
Deputy Principal, Rustenburg Girls Junior School
"This training is applicable, vibrant, and innovative with great educational exposure. It is great that I've gained new knowledge and am able to apply it."
"PurpleZA has created a wonderful atmosphere within our school. Our staff are motivated, empowered and excited about learning and implementing their new skills. Monthly challenges and badge chasing has kept the competition ‘gees’ going as we keep each other accountable. Powerful platform and great support! We love PurpleZA!"
Head of Department, Pinelands North Primary School
"The team at PurpleZA are inspiring, encouraging and incredibly supportive. Our staff have thoroughly enjoyed the freedom to choose what they want to learn and when or even where they want to learn. The flexibility offered is a game changer in terms of Professional Development. Buy-in from staff has been easy because of the gamified learning design. The number of courses and engagement offered in the bite-size units is phenomenal –absolute value for money!"
H.O.D. IT & Curriculum Development, St John’s D.S.G.
"As a small primary school, we were concerned about the spend required to access the platform but decided to bite the bullet and invest in our staff development. Looking back, we now know it was absolutely the right decision. PurpleZA is an amazing tool! Our staff love having fun and learning at the same time. We could not have spent the money in a better way!"

Business Manager, Pinelands North Primary School
"What I love about PurpleZA is being able to log on when I have time - those 10 minutes while waiting for a meeting now don't feel like a waste of time anymore. I just log on and do some reading and lesson planning. It's not like I have to have an hour dedicated for it - even though it can sometimes lead to that.The research has already all been done and packaged here. There are always articles that spark ideas for the classroom, teaching and shortcuts. The ready-made things in the "goodie bags" that are available to be edited and used in a short space of time are fantastic. There isn't one course I’ve completed where I haven't found anything new or interesting."
Executive Head, The Grove Primary School
"PurpleZA provides such a professional, friendly, helpful and beautifully guided platform that not only motivates but also encourages. Lindsay and Irene really go the extra mile to ensure everyone gets the optimal experience out of every learning experience. Every engagement with PurpleZA makes me want to be a better teacher!"
Teacher, Cannons Creek Independent School
"I absolutely love the courses on PurpleZA. As a teacher we are constantly on the go between our kiddos, prep, admin and laminating, which leaves little to no brain activity for PD but the team at PurpleZA has turned PD into such a fun and exciting way to enhance your skills that it doesn’t feel like a chore. This platform sparks my creativity, challenges my competitiveness and keeps me coming back for more!"
