Randstad Educationís sponsorship is critical because it provides supply cover to the successful applicantsí schools free of charge for the full period of their placement.
Miriyan Sikkens, teacher at William Davis Primary School in London is the second teacher to embark on the programme and has recently departed for Wa in Ghana.† Her three month placement involves working with teachers and children across several schools in the Upper West region, which is acknowledged as one of the poorest regions of the country.† She is documenting her experience through an informative and visual blog which can be viewed here.
Randstad facilitated social media training for Miriyan prior to her departure which will enable her to confidently blog her experience and most importantly engage the children in Ghana with the children at William Davis Primary School in London, enabling them to build meaningful relationships with both educational and personal benefits.
Alison Helm, assistant head teacher at Curwen Primary School in London has recently returned from a similar placement in Ghana where she instigated a literary programme initiative that Miriyan Sikkens will be able to continue.† This gives school children in Ghana the opportunity to use laptops for the very first time and Miriyan will send their letters to the children at William Davis Primary School, sharing the differences and similarities of life at school and at home in Ghana.
