Training and Mentoring
In line with the African proverb of “it takes a village to raise a child”, SEED provides a range of physical programs for stakeholders in the education ecosystem.
For schools (especially those serving children from low-income households), we provide business development and school improvement programs which places a strong focus on teaching and equipping school leaders with necessary skills to help them manage efficient and sustainable schools. We also focus on empowering school leaders and teachers to provide high-quality education to the students that they serve. Our range of programs are offered across the six SEED quality drivers which we provide not just to schools but also state governments, corporates, not-for-profits and funding agencies. We do not leave out parents and communities in our programs. Most importantly, we also provide direct programs for students as well.
We are currently working on the SEED Learning Academy (SLA), a web-based resource centre that offers stakeholders in the education ecosystem with training and global community of support.
Many programs have demonstrated that with the right training and continuing support, schools can improve their leadership, management, teaching and learning. Scaling these interventions to reach a larger number of schools are the typical challenges that most face.
We must all be willing and prepared to enter into partnerships to scale. We must all work together to bring about change for the sake of the children. There is also the need to support the Affordable Private School sector to help complement the public education system to ensure that all children in developing countries are receiving a quality education.
