When you are a director or manager, expectations are often high. In addition to achieve program or company results, it is expected from you to lead a (inter)national team of experts: optimize cooperation, maintain team spirit and getting the best out of your team of experts by coaching.

During this training we train you how to discover your personal leadership style and face strenghts and weaknesses. We train you also to improve your personal leadership style and we will equip you with tools that can make your role as leader easier.

In a country like South Sudan, where much development takes place, many financial resources are generated by project proposals. Only a well-written project proposal will be granted.

All these questions and more will be covered in this course.

Quality Assurance can be seen as an exercise on paper and will never leave the drawer of policy makers. Nothing could be further from the true. Quality Assurane has absolutely to do with the education itself. In fact, it will be visible in the classroom.

Ouality Assurance is a very broad topic which include policies and systems. Teachers play key roles in quality education. We train you in how you (as a teacher) can make quality assurance visible in the classroom: how to deal with it and how to implement it. 

Have you ever been in a workshop where the facilitator was working very hard and participants were not active at all?

Everyone can remember a teacher that was special. Not only because you have learned from him/her, but especially because of the way he/she taught.

Students can excel because of the quality of the teachers. Teachers are confident professionals when they are convinced of their skills. Teaching skills are the basis for confidence.

During this course we train you how develop your own confident teaching style by using different interactive teaching methodologies.
