In November 2018, ECCN, UNHCR and the Accelerated Education Working Group (AEWG), co-hosted a 4-day training in Uganda. The training sought to expand participants' knowledge and skills in the fundamentals of Accelerated Education programming. It brought together representatives from Ministries of Education, USAID, UN agencies, and Implementing Partner organizations from Burundi, DRC, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Sudan and Uganda.
Participants studied and discussed the AEWG’s 10 Principles for Effective practice. Each country team produced a draft set of priority action points that they would further refine upon return to their home country. Simultaneous translation allowed English- and French-speaking countries to share resources and strategies, thus forming a true community of leaders in Accelerated Education.
ECCN interviewed several participants about their experience for the ECCN blog.
All materials for the training, including slide decks, handouts, videos, and activity instructions are available on the training page.
