Open Call for Workshop Presenters

OPEN CALL FOR
WORKSHOP LEADERS
Share Your Skills with Our Students

The Foundation for Enriching Education’s programmes demonstrate creativity, innovation, empowerment, equity and inclusion to enhance the experiences provided by the Ministry of Education.

Enrichment programs are exciting opportunities for our students to learn from passionate presenters like you to develop their skills, explore interests and consider new ideas both inside and outside of the regular classroom setting.

The Foundation for Education invites leaders in the community to share workshop and programme ideas for online programming in spring 2021 and online, in-school, or extra-curricular activities for the 2021-’22 school year.

ART|LIFE PROGRAMS

We welcome your proposals for student learning in arts, life skills and career paths, environmental action and leadership as well as cultural/human diversity explorations.  We invite you to encourage our youth to explore new ideas and concepts, discover content, develop confidence and build long-lasting friendships that will empower them to reach their full potential and equip them with the necessary skills through your creative programme workshop content.

DAY CAMPS or SUMMER CAMPS

Not all learning takes place during school hours.

Together we can keep our youth engaged and intrigued, learning and exploring during the school breaks.   Offering a mixture of educational learnings and recreational activities that children simply love can help a student with their performance in academics. If you have an idea for a unique summer camp or Professional Development (PD) Day program, let’s talk.  Together we’ll keep our youth engaged in their studies while having fun during the summer and holiday breaks.
