Skills Labs are a no-cost, easy method to change teacher's pedagogy from theory-based to competency-based instruction.
Skills Labs are a weekly time where students learn by doing rather than by rote memorization. Skills Labs give teachers a structure to use for any subject that makes learning more interactive, student-focused, and practical. The structure consists of three core components:
Build – teacher shares a concept
Practice – students have a hands-on opportunity to practice the concept
Present – students present their work while developing presentational skills and receiving feedback
Student Business Clubs
Student-led business clubs allow learners to experiment with starting one or more enterprises in a team setting. The clubs provide an experiential platform for students to apply what they are learning in class in a real business context, acquiring business/employability skills that will enable them to meet the demands of the labor market or create their own jobs if that market fails them.
Work Readiness Training
The Work Readiness Curriculum has been developed to provide the beneficiaries with the foundational skills and knowledge necessary to become healthy, productive workers and participants in civic and community affairs.
Portfolios are one ouf our key assessment tools for skills- based learning. A portfolio is a folder, binder, or notebook containing a student’s work, as well as an evaluation from the teacher of the strengths and weaknesses of the work. The results from the portfolio should contribute to up to 50% on summative assessment. Portfolio activities can also be used by government as a resource for developing practical national exam questions.
