New programme for developing leadership skills

16 August 2010

The Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa launches a programme aimed at developing school leadership skills and continues its existing programme for Primary School teachers.

On August 13, the Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa, launched its third tier of a new initiative aimed at primary school teachers within the Mombasa municipality. This programme focuses on building their understanding and practice of effective teaching methods in language learning as well as improving the teachers’ fluency in English.

Eighteen teachers from 10 schools participated, following on from the Tier 2 programme last April. This programme takes advantage of the Academies’ expertise, developed in its own teaching staff, and its ability to model innovative practices to operate high quality professional learning programmes at an international standard.

In addition, the Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa is launching its first session of a specialized programme for school leaders (developed and offered in collaboration with the Aga Khan University – Institute for Educational Development) focused on developing pedagogical leadership skills. Twenty six school leaders from 24 schools attended this 340 hour programme.
