Vocational Training

Sazani have developed and delivered vocational training in partnership with local African based colleges. Building on local strengths and supporting existing capacity, linking where possible to government provision is what we do. Enterprise for youths and bridging gaps between technical and vocational provision requires an in depth understanding of the local economy.

The biggest challenge in both Africa and Europe is how to support the population of young people not able to find educational opportunities that will give them a livelihood. Both continents have recognized this in numerous policy documents from Somaliland to South Africa and from Greece to Estonia. Sazani have developed and delivered vocational training in partnership with local African based colleges looking at self employment, meeting local demands and supporting an outward critical thinking approach. Supporting learners how to swim in a sea of information is also about teaching them to avoid sharks. Critical Thinking is key. Building on local institutional strengths and supporting existing capacity is what we do.

Teacher Training

Sazani has been working with the Ministry of Education since 2004, our work has focused on rural schools and communities to support the capacity of teachers and adult educators to deliver a quality curriculum contextualized for Zanzibar. Using our country specific resources, we have developed a successful approach for engaging teachers, enriching their curriculum and delivery skills to support sustainable rural livelihood strategies through a range of Continued Professional Development workshops for local teachers. These work within the Healthy and Sustainable Schools framework to develop the skills and expertise of teachers to deliver beyond basic education to build economic and social resilience of learners by concentrating on our life skill focus areas; Health, Global Citizenship and Sustainability Awareness and enterprise skills.
