From 6-10th April, EduSpots is launching its first 5 day residential training Academy, which is a central component of the NGO’s innovative new Community Leadership in Education (CLEd) programme that will equip committed volunteers with the skills and insight needed to lead local change in their communities.
EduSpots, a UK and Ghanaian registered NGO, connects, trains and equips educational ‘Catalysts’, who in turn lead a network of 42 education centres or libraries, known as Spots, that EduSpots has built or supported since the organisation began in 2015.
18 Catalysts, from 15 different Spot communities, have been selected to take part in this very first CLEd Programme. Each Catalyst has already demonstrated significant commitment to supporting the development of their community Spot and learning outcomes for local students. Participants range from Senior High School students, to teachers and community members. Engagement and problem-solving between different education stakeholders is central to the NGO’s model for community-led change, and the mix of Catalysts on the programme reflects this.
The CLEd Academy will cover eight areas including project management, community engagement, child protection and inclusion, basic literacy development, education project design, fundraising and social entrepreneurship, communication, and STEM education.
In addition to these, the group will also engage on strategies for learning, reflection and well-being, as well as working with their community members to put together personal and community based development plans. The group will also enjoy a variety of entertainment and team building exercises, alongside a trip and a final night dinner.
Following the residential training, Catalysts will return to their communities where they will apply their learning to the management of their Spots and the delivery of education programmes. But they will not do this alone. The programme provides a further 8 months of support and mentoring for each Catalyst from one of EduSpots’ team of Leadership Coaches, to really help participants embed the Academy training in real life impacts.
