Transforming Education  Programme

Our Education Development Programme is the core element of what we do as a charity.  The model focuses on sustainable school improvement, by working alongside senior leaders from schools, education providers and local NGO’s.

Our Transforming Education Project (TEP) aim is to create education hubs or model schools within countries  or communities that have been impacted by conflict or poverty.  We strategically create or partner with schools or education providers that are well placed geographically and within reach of rural or hard to reach communities.

KVL invest in school leaders with leadership training and areas such as capacity building and sustainable school improvement. We work with teachers to ensure that areas such as teaching & learning, planning and assessment are of a high quality, effective in their use, and creative in their approach. This means children have access to a high quality, relevant learning experiences which gives them skills and qualifications that equips them for later life and to make a positive difference in their community.

We then work with teacher trainers to ensure that this improvement in practice is not limited to one school or community. This is achieved by creating school networks stemming from these hub schools. Hub schools will create links with a group of local schools, or look to establish new schools where none exist, this will more than likely be with schools in rural areas, where historically schools are isolated, under resourced and unsupported. Children in these areas are more vulnerable to child labour, becoming child soldiers, exploitation and early marriage. Meaning education is accessible to those who need it the most to break the cycle of poverty that many families exist in.

KVL works with the hub school to be self sustaining and not reliant on external funding. We do however look to support the additional costs incurred through the network model. Locally based Education development officers work to create and support the network and ensure that the partnership remains strong. Teacher trainers ensure that all training is disseminated and applied consistently and school leaders will work in a network team to provide peer support, accountability and again ensure consistently high quality of education is available to all children and young people.
