 Upcoming Dates

August  July 30 - Aug 20th 2019

 Rwandan Context

The Rwandan education system has faced many challenges, including in the aftermath of the Genocide and recently with the change of language from French to English. LRTT has been working in Nyamasheke District since 2016 and continuing to support the government education reforms.

Our objective

Through interactive training and coaching, you will guide teachers to use the new competency-based curriculum. You will help shape the project as you build the capacity of Rwandan teachers to lead training in their own schools.

Fellowship Overview

Rwanda Aid

Our partner is well respected by the Rwandan Education Board and their peer mentor programme is nationally recognised. The District Education office are very committed and the mayor even invited us to his party last year.

Understanding the complex history

Arriving in Kigali, one of the safest and most developed capital cities in Africa, you will visit the genocide museum and start get to understand the complex history. You will then travel through rolling hills to the remote south west corner of Rwanda, the second poorest district.

Planning, conferences and coaching

To prepare for the conference days your Team Leaders and Rwanda Aid will run training and support your planning. You will then lead workshop sessions in pairs to your group of around ten Rwandan teachers. Between conference days you will visit their schools to coach them through improvements to their teaching.

Training and observations

In the final conference you will co-deliver training with your Rwandan colleagues. Return visits to observe and coach will help fully embed new strategies into their classrooms. The aim of this phase is to create networks of Rwandan teachers who will lead improvements in teaching and learning in their schools.

A great opportunity to provide consultation for other teachers and to reflect on my own practice. The accommodation was excellent and catered to everyone's needs!

Katherine

Rwanda 2016

It’s given me a good understanding of the challenges facing Rwandan teachers especially with regard to the recent teaching language change from French to English. This will enrich my own teaching and allow me to share these experiences with my own students.

What an incredible summer! The trips to Lake Kivu and Nyguwe forest were fantastic and had a good balance of activities and relaxation time.
