 Context in Ghana

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.

Our objective

Based in Takoradi 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.

Fellowship Overview

Our partner: Sabre Trust

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.

Understanding the context

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.

Planning and leading

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.

Training and championing

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.

Fellow Experience

James

Ghana 2016

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.

Linda

Ghana 2016

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.

Rebecca

Ghana 2016

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.
