We support, influence and train teachers through capacity building workshops to promote education that enhances capabilities of gainful employment and decent work through leadership skills building, competences, team work, mindset change and qualifications that are also relevant to the demands of a rapidly changing labor market and overall globalization trends. This makes them secure in the classroom and experience appropriate levels of autonomy or independence.
Just like Karl A Menninger quoted, “What the teacher is, is more more important than what he teaches”
3. Vocational skills development
The program aims at promoting inter generational equity and strengthening economic and social policies that aim at eradicating poverty and endeavoring to find synergy between economic growth by equipping youth with entrepreneurial-led vocational skills through mentoring and encouraging students to utilize practical and innovative skills for entrepreneurship and not to only study for certificates to look for jobs.
4. Sharpening the leadership edge.
This focuses on equipping head teachers with basic leadership in education skills since in Uganda, there is no school for head teachers. They all graduate as teachers so, 90% of them do not work to their full potential due to lack of enough skills for the leadership role and this hinders their productivity and excellence. We organize workshops to influence a sharper education leadership edge in Uganda.
