The visits of teachers, NGO's and schools to our first school, Silverleaf Bishop Kasula Academy, have led to many requests for Silverleaf Teacher Trainings to be made available for others to benefit. As a result, we have launched a Teacher Training Professional Development Program. This program offers outside schools and NGO's the opportunity to benefit from our teacher trainings.
Silverleaf is now offering 1 or 2 day intensive courses on topics such as: Teaching with Technology, Special Education, or Developing Teaching Resources with Local Materials, as well as 5-day comprehensive courses on School Leadership, Student Centered Learning, Curriculum Development, or Early Childhood Education. The cost for NGO's or schools is 250,000 Per day for up to 30 people.
