Teachers accompanying their group of students either participate as a chaperones or GSP Educators. Please note that we require educators to arrive on campus approximately a week before the program start date for in-person training, – this includes teachers traveling with a school group, so we suggest that groups bring an additional chaperone if they have a team member who will be participating in the Educator Program.
You or your institution will need to provide limited support for your time with African Leadership Academy as part of your professional development. You will need to fund your own travel arrangements to South Africa, travel/health insurance and visa costs if required. The Academy will provide accommodation and meals to the educators who are finally selected to join us. Details will be provided once you apply.
We do have limited scholarships available, exclusively for African educators or leadership program facilitators. An application and selection process will be followed, which will include assignments and interviews. These scholarships will be granted to those who have already begun to implement leadership or project-based learning programs, and are committed to taking what they learn at ALA back to their schools or NGO’s in their home countries.
