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:
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.
