iGRED launches forum to improve education among youth

The Institute of Gender, Research, Education, and Development (iGRED) has undertaken a social media launch for its Learners’ Forum (LeaFo).

This initiative, one of iGRED’s flagship programs, aims at improving learning experiences among young people through transformative empowerment workshops that translates into high academic performance, a fulfilling academic journey, wholesome development of their unique talents and exposure to knowledge that will help them make sound career development decisions.

iGRED believes that it is possible for learning to be easier and more effective if students are empowered to identify their individual learning styles. Teachers and educators can also be empowered to develop multidimensional teaching styles that will meet the specific need of diverse students in a classroom to achieve the overall goal.

The initiative comes at the back of several calls to change the traditional system of teaching and learning in schools.

In this vein, iGRED believes that just as any other activity requires skill to attain excellence, the teaching and learning process also needs to be approached with skill so as to ensure the optimum use of personal study as well as classroom time to enhance learning among students. Further, it seeks to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 4, (SDG4) which concerns quality education.

Every individual is a stakeholder in education, hence iGRED is calling on all stakeholders to come on board to support in various capacities of mentorship and resource sponsorships. Alumni, Members of Parliament, Ministers, School Management, Teacher Associations, and student-bodies are encouraged to engage the Learners’ Forum for empowerment workshops.

The institute has partnered the Ghana Library Authority (GLA) on this programme, and it is going to implement training workshops with materials endorsed and recommended by the Ministry of Education through the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA).
