ALL WELCOME: Refreshments available from 17:15

The aim of this seminar is to discuss the challenges of educational provision in African countries emerging from conflict. The seminar examines key areas for discussion such as teacher training, identifying the most appropriate means of delivery, reaching out to over-age youth and adults through alternative basic education initiatives, and the political implications affecting the language of instruction. It will draw specifically on the diverse educational programmes that the Africa Educational Trust has been implementing in some of the poorest countries in Africa which have been affected not only by poverty, famine and drought but which have also been affected by conflict and war such as Somalia, South Sudan and northern Uganda.
