2nd ANNUAL REGIONAL EDUCATION FORUM – APRIL 2018


As part of on-going efforts to enhance collaboration between our Community Schools and respective Education Boards in the region, the Education Board of Africa Federation held its 2nd Annual Regional Education Forum, hosted by Central Board of Education of Dar es Salaam Jamaat, on Friday 27th April 2018, at the Al Muntazir School.

Present at the forum were representatives from Arusha Jaffery Academy, Mombasa Jaffery Academy, Nairobi Jaffery Academy and Al Muntazir Schools. Building on the previous forum held in Nairobi one year ago, the session focussed on building a road map for collaboration between the different Education Boards and Community Schools within the region, with tangible action items.

Some of the focus areas discussed included the teachers exchange program, the student exchange program, IRE curriculum, teacher’s professional development and career counselling. The initial teachers exchange program between Nairobi Jaffery School & the Al Muntazir School was very fruitful, and it was decided that every school will aim for one exchange program during the ensuing year. Effective teaching practices, community relations, diversity, integration, participation and inclusion, are examples of issues that may be addressed through the exchange program and its associated activities.

Another initiative that the regional schools suggested was the Student Exchange program, to encourage exchange of views, build friendships across borders and encourage school spirit. Various ideas were floated to facilitate this, particularly using inter-school competitions in areas like sport, drama, quiz and elocution amongst others. Amongst the long terms projects being facilitated by the Education Board is the roll-out of the Neuro Psychology of Learning (NPL) to the various community schools. Since 2015, over 200 teachers have gone through this program, with collaboration from AFTAB and CBG.

This is another key focus area over the coming year, to ensure new teachers receive this training where needed, and existing teachers continue to receive refresher courses. This is a crucial part of Professional Development and the feedback from teachers has shown a profound impact.

The Education Board of Africa Federation takes this opportunity to thank the Central Board of Education and Al-Muntazir School for hosting this important forum, and the participants for attending and contributing positively during the session.
