What is the Female Voices Programme?

The Female Voices programme is a dynamic mentoring initiative aimed at empowering female teachers to deliver webinars and share teaching materials on topics of their choice through the Teaching English Africa website. It offers a comprehensive learning experience, including:

  • Online training sessions led by expert trainers from the British Council
  • Personalised one-to-one mentoring to guide participants in creating their own webinars or teaching resources
  • Opportunities to deliver webinars or share materials on Teaching English Africa

The Journey So Far

The response to the programme has been overwhelmingly positive. Throughout the course, participants engaged in weekly live sessions, delving into topics ranging from presentation skills to material writing. Despite the challenges posed by distance and time, the dedication of the participants shone through as they navigated the virtual learning environment with enthusiasm and passion.

As the first cohort course reached its conclusion, participants proudly finalised their teaching materials, including lesson plans, teaching tips, and instructional videos. These valuable resources are set to be shared with educators worldwide through the Teaching English Africa website, marking a significant milestone in the project's journey.
