The Adopt-a-School Foundation has conceptualised an in-house leadership development programme which aims at developing capacity of the Foundation’s internal staff to facilitate leadership programmes in schools. The content of this programme has been formalised and accredited by the Sector Education and Training Authority. The programme pilot took place in Muldersdrift to conduct a leadership programme for Bayers Naude Secondary School in Soweto, funded by Barloworld.
The aim of the training is to empower educators and the School Management with strong leadership skills to function as leaders, whilst improving teamwork and the practice of leadership in the school. Further, to instil a common shared vision and values to assist the educators and school Management in achieving their primary work goals.
“I was humbled to see how the programme evolved from the concept to reality; after putting much effort from developing material for the programme, to training the staff to be facilitators and assessors. During the session, I was proud to see the confidence in the team and admired how they ensured the programme was a success,” said Banyana Mohajane Head of social and skills Development.
