OUTREACH PROGRAMMES (Capacity Building/ Development)
LGIHE offers continuous professional development trainings for school leaders, teachers, social workers and students with particular focus on:
Teacher Identity: enables the teacher discover herself and her role of educating so as to become an effective role model/authority
- School leadership, Management and Culture: emphasizes the creation of a visionary school culture led by the school in which leadership is not a position but a service.
- Educate While Teaching: stresses the importance of employing learner centred teaching methodologies, positive discipline, effective planning and preparation that position the learner at the centre of learning thus making her a protagonist of her own learning process.
- Formative Assessment: nurtures teachers’ ability to design and use assessment tools and data to promote deep learning with particular focus on High Order Thinking skills.
- Literacy Enhancement Training: fosters teachers’ skills and teaching methods that will be demonstrated through learners’ improved fluency in reading, writing and comprehension.
- Life skills Training: cultivates abilities for adoptive and positive behaviour that enable them confront everyday life demands and challenges.
