We design professional development programmes that work
We offer Professional Development programmes and solutions to support entire communities and organisations. Our expertise in local and international sectors enables us to deliver insightful and impactful training that can be tailored to meet your specific needs.
Our Design Approach
The potential for greatness resides within each child. This potential is not solely realised through classroom participation; rather by the continuous and full support of teachers, school leaders, parents and the community for their holistic transformative empowerment.
For change to be sustainable, transformation must include the change of culture in schools. Here we define culture as the variables of leadership and teachers’ attitudes, school processes as well as organisational character and behaviour.
Sustainable transformation must be replicable and transferable. This involves the acceptance and assistance of the larger eco-system including regulator, government and industry.
Our Theory of Change
It took us six years of exploring and trialling multiple interventions to explore a more evidence-based approach and to enhance our transformation efforts. Thus, ‘A Theory of Change’ was born – co-created through a collaboration between academic expertise and practical experience. This theory reinforces the systematic and cumulative study of the links between activities, outcomes and context of the initiative (Fullbright-Anderson, Kubisch and Connell, 1998, p. 16).
Our Theory of Change puts an emphasis on the central position of a learner. We need to understand that for the inner circle to be successful, the outer circles need to move, change and innovate. While our role is to support any or all of these dimensions, it is ultimately the responsibility of the system to ensure success.
Monitoring & Evaluation
Our M&E process consists of four stages and is underpinned by the concept of Programme Success by Design.
Are your initiatives working? Do your programmes have a measurable impact on expected outcomes? If not, how can we help you to make strategic changes in order to achieve your objectives?
This is where Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) comes in. A complex and often intertwined process, M&E is integral in any programme where tracking, assessment and evaluation of progress, impact, goals and set targets are undertaken. It is also an essential tool in assessing the quality of programmes being conducted.
We have a dedicated team of certified M&E specialists that can provide M&E services to all sorts of projects, including our own. We have a broad range of experience which includes working with NGOs, universities, government ministries, not-for-profits, and of course other social enterprises.
