The Community Leadership in Education (CLEd) programme develops our Catalysts’ knowledge, skills and mindset to lead sustainable change in their communities through education, based on their communities aims and aspirations.
The programme has seven core components: Project Management, Education Project Design, Community Engagement, Communicating for Impact, Literacy Development, Child Protection & Inclusion, and Fundraising & Social Entrepreneurship.
We have been building leadership capacity of our local leaders since 2016, but are launching the first trial of the CLEd programme and certificate in January 2020 with our first 5 day EduSpots Academy in April 2021 with our first cohort of 19 Catalysts, who have already demonstrated impressive leadership potential and commitment in our Spot communities.
These are the first cohort of individuals taking part in our Community Leadership in Education (CLEd) Certificate from January 2021 – December 2022. They were selected after application, from within our existing volunteer network.
