CLEd Programme

The Community Leadership in Education (CLEd) programme aims to develop our Catalysts’ knowledge, skills and mindset to lead sustainable change in their communities through education, based on their community’s aims and aspirations. All those involved in CLEd are currently already long-term volunteers in EduSpots communities.

The programme has 8 core components: Project Management and Sustainability, Team Building & Community Engagement, Education Project Design,  Literacy Development, Practical STEM Education, Child Protection & Inclusion, and Fundraising & Social Entrepreneurship and Communication for Impact,. The Academy also explores well-being in social change, the power of reflection, and social leadership more widely.
