Great 4 Learning


In the recent past the Annual National Assessments (ANA) found that comprehension, literacy and mathematics skills levels in primary schools were unsatisfactory.

Great Four Learning Adventure was founded in 2014 as a new venture to address the lack of skills mentioned above. Great 4 Learning Adventure supports primary schools with comprehension, literacy and mathematics skills improvement programmes and services based on assessment of grade 4 to grade 7 learners.

The Chief Executive Officer of Great 4 Learning Adventure is Lukas Redelinghuys.  Lukas’s career in marketing, sales, management and training spans over more than 23years, mainly as franchise owner of learner support businesses to high schools.
In 2018 he bought the Great Four Learning Adventure business.  By the end of 2018 there were seven Great Four Learning Adventure franchises operating in South Africa.
