Capacity Building

Utilizing a whole school approach to enabling continuous development of interethnic integrated activities in an environment, where key education stakeholders will actively participate and implement a mix of structured professional development workshops, in-school learning activities and a follow-up mentoring program will be the core to attain Component 2 objectives.

Teachers, school managers, school board members, parents and municipal education officials will be equipped with skills required to successfully integrate education in their schools. This will be accomplished through:

  • Empowering key educational institutions to coordinate stakeholders to build capacity and work together to reach the common goal of achieving sustainable Interethnic Integration in Education;
  • Developing training module and delivering quality training in a phased approach to education stakeholders;
  • Establishing a follow-up and mentoring system among beneficiaries to create a system to sustain achievements beyond the end of the project;
  • Providing municipal governments with the capacity to provide resources, effectively coordinate and evaluate efforts in the municipality and the school to implement integrated education.
  • Building capacity of school management to provide leadership to create and sustain integrated education and to build supportive relationships with the school community;
  • Involving school boards in planning, decision making and managing effort at the schools to integrated education and strengthen links with local communities;
  • Involving parents in activities at school to improve interethnic communication and to bridge ethnic and social gaps;
  • Improving the capacity of teachers to effectively apply interethnic integration approaches in their classes and the whole school;
  • Improving active communication and cooperation among students from different ethnic background.
