There is a great need for improving education in Ghana with 98% of year two students unable to read and understand, whilst only 58% of primary students go through to secondary school. There is a real need to support pre-school and elementary teachers.
Based alongside the beautiful Cape Coast you will work with our partners, the District Education Office and Universities, to support longer-term systemic change. We deliver the LRTT course to teachers in the area focusing on effective teaching strategies for the foundation years of primary school.
We work closely with a number of partners in Ghana including Sabre Trust and the Ghana Education Service to support the development of education programs and integrate training and monitoring tools into government systems.
Orientation sessions will help you settle into the Ghanaian way of life, pick up language skills and understand the education system. You will visit schools in the local area to observe lessons and meet teachers you will be working with.
You will start to plan and lead inspiring sessions tailored to the specific challenges. Visiting your group of teachers in their classrooms you will watch their new strategies in action and continue to build strong relationships.
In the final part of the fellowship you will support your group of Ghanaian teachers to lead the training and champion quality education. The training finishes with a graduation ceremony that celebrates the importance of teachers.
Everyone I spoke with said they had found the sessions very useful. I particularly welcomed the opportunity to speak at length with one headteacher. It also worked well having planning time and reflections together and working with other Fellows was a good experience.
Sabre Trust was excellent in supporting us during the trip and I cannot rate them highly enough for everything they did to ensure we had a fantastic experience in Ghana.
Taking part in a second fellowship I feel I was able to offer a lot more knowledge about what successful training sessions looked like and I was able to guide others to think about how sessions could be more beneficial.
The excursions were a really great part of the trip. A great chance to see Ghana and spend some social time with the other Fellows outsied of the main programme.
The group stay in local guesthouses and/or University accommodation in the towns of Elmina and Accra. Facilities include western toilets and showers but limited internet access.
All transport is included once you have arrived in Ghana at Accra airport. The group mostly get from A to B in the form of minivans and taxis.
Your Team Leaders are all qualified teachers and provide support throughout the Fellowship. Our partners in Ghana have extensive local experience and knowledge and are excited to warmly welcome the team in Ghana.
