Training | After School Game Changer


The After School Programme Office offers various training programmes including:

The Leading Innovative Partnerships in Extended Education Training Programme 

This programme is targeted at school, NGO and other sector leaders. Schools alone cannot solve the issues within our education system and if change is to be realized, a collaborative effort is required from all stakeholders across the learning journey. Course participants will have the opportunity to learn how different education stakeholders are moving beyond individual action towards collective action, with the aim of creating coherent systems of support around the school and across the extended school day. The application window for this programme is currently closed.

After School Basics Training Programme

This four-day intensive training programme is targeted at practitioners and covers various themes including:

  • The why, what and how of After School Programmes
  • Social and emotional tools to understand self and learners
  • Understanding their role in delivering effective and quality programmes
  • Partnerships and relationship management to ensure optimal institutional support

If you are an organisation and are interested in training practitioners or volunteers (groups of 20-30) in your organisation please send an email to
