African teachers spend day at College – thanks to EducAid

Eleven tutors from Sierra Leone travelled to the UK to spend the day visiting Havering Sixth Form College to observe lessons and find out about student life.

The teachers are all part of EducAid – the College’s international nominated charity – and were particularly interested in viewing teaching and learning in English Language, Business, Science and ICT courses. They were also keen to find out about the College’s Subject Coaching programme for newly qualified teachers.

Eleven tutors from Sierra Leone travelled to the UK to spend the day visiting Havering Sixth Form College to observe lessons and find out about student life.

The teachers are all part of EducAid – the College’s international nominated charity – and were particularly interested in viewing teaching and learning in English Language, Business, Science and ICT courses. They were also keen to find out about the College’s Subject Coaching programme for newly qualified teachers.

The visiting teachers began their day with a warm welcome from students who run the College charity group. They then listened to a presentation from Assistant Principal Julie Warner about College priorities and values, teaching and learning strategies and subject coaching for new tutors. Lesson observations followed with a chance to talk to teachers and students about College life.

Faculty Leader Lucien Taylor, who organised the visit, said: “The tutors were very enthusiastic about their visit here. They all said how much they enjoyed the lessons they observed and they left with lots of teaching ideas to take back to Sierra Leone with them.”
