 Context in Ghana

There is a great need for improving education in Ghana with 98% of year two students able to read and understand, whilst only 58% of primary students go through to secondary school. There is a real need to support preschool and elementary teachers. Primary schooling is the target area for this LRTT Fellowship and for LRTT’s local partner in Ghana.

Our objective

Based in the north of Ghana near Tamale (about an hour flight from Accra) you will work with our partner, Afrikids, 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: Afrikids

Afrkids runs inspiring education programmes and with the support of LRTT have been able to expand their reach. They work closely with the District Education Office to 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. Working with your group of teachers during conferences 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.

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.

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.

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.
