We were pleased to host our first Learn More! event in Uganda on Thursday 25 October in collaboration with British Council. The one-day conference was held in the capital city, Kampala, and attended by school principals and heads of department interested in learning more about the Cambridge curriculum and how to introduce it to their school.
Fiona Inci, Country Director, British Council Uganda opened the event, commenting: 'A Cambridge education will be key in helping prepare young people in Uganda with all the relevant 21st century skills.'
Joseph Mbugua, Manager – East Africa, Cambridge International, gave a presentation on the Cambridge Pathway and how to become a Cambridge school. 'We had a lot of questions from the delegates which is a strong indication of their interest in the Cambridge curriculum,' he said. 'We look forward to welcoming more schools to the Cambridge family in the near future.'
Education Consultant, Audrey Dralega, who was the guest speaker, presented on 'Education for the 21st Century'. Her talk covered Active Learning, metacognition and academic rigour with emphasis on application.
Audrey said: 'Education in the 21st century is going to require that learners are equipped to question or interrogate sources of information. This is an absolutely vital skill. You need a curriculum that teaches children to express themselves and be creative.'
Thank you to all the schools that joined us for the day.
