Mpumalanga is a relatively small province which accounts for approximately 7.2% of all schools in the country according to School Realities 2016. The province has four education districts and Bohlabela, in the north, was selected to be one of the eight NECT target districts.

The district has 397 schools, 7 194 teachers and 205 710 learners.

The inception phase in Bohlabela started in July 2014 and included profiling the districts, setting up projects and building relationships with the district offices. At the start of 2015, the work of the NECT in the district moved into its implementation phase through the provision of intense support to the 58 (15%) Fresh Start Schools (FSS) which serve as test sites for NECT innovations. The NECT is currently preparing to scale up innovations to benefit all schools in the district from the beginning of 2017. 

The NECT has contracted the Price Waterhouse Coopers Consortium (PWC, Class Act, PSA and Penreach), to support the target schools in the district.
