Visiting Consultant & Author

Visiting Consultant Programme

Essentially, the AISA Visiting Consultant Programme provides advisory, logistical and financial support to member schools that need on-site or virtual consultant services. AISA has a pool of vetted, high-calibre consultants who deliver bespoke services that meet the specific needs of the participating schools.
Schools that have utilised this service in the past have included governance training, curriculum development, early childhood training, guidance and testing, ESL, Board training, music, to name just a few.

Visiting Consultant Programme Details:

The programme entails schools teaming up with AISA to jointly select and invite a consultant to visit each participating school for two to five days. However, during these times of unprecedented challenge, the programme continues virtually. Therefore, until further notice, the programme does not include details pertaining to cost of travel and accommodation. The following details apply:

  • Participating schools must be AISA full member schools with a current membership.
  • The host schools will negotiate and pay professional fees directly to the consultant.

Visiting Author Programme

Due to the high cost of international travel to Africa, for many schools in the AISA region bringing out an international author is prohibitively high.

The Visiting Author Programme enables schools within a sub-region of Africa to jointly engage an author who will spend up to a week in each school, working with students and teachers to share stories and experiences as well as run training sessions for teachers and librarians.

AISA provides funding to the schools significantly reducing the travel cost burden on each school and ensuring that our students still receive the benefits and inspiration that these author visits provide.

Visiting Author Programme Details:

  • AISA coordinates this programme whose objective is to provide a vibrant, engaging learning experience for the whole school community; students, parents and teachers.
  • Participating schools must be AISA Full Member Schools with current membership;
  • AISA pays round-trip airfare for the author from their home to each participating school;
  • AISA pays for visas and other costs related to travel;
  • Each host school will negotiate and pay professional fees directly to the author;
  • Each host school pays for all on-site expenses including the author’s accommodation, local transport etc;
  • Each host school pays AISA US$825 as a participation fee. There should be no less than three schools per visit (or if fewer schools are involved, the participating schools will be required to pay the equivalent of three schools’ participation fees i.e. $2,475).
