Learning World: WISE Awards for Educational Innovation
Part 1 - Business Backing School, Morocco
In Morocco, the Al Jisr organisation is getting the business community to help improve the education system through direct investment. It is a kind of adoption scheme in which individual schools benefit from the expertise and resources of private companies. They, in return, hope to gain from improved education standards in the future.
Part 2 - Creative Partnerships, United Kingdom
An initiative in Britain to encourage young people to make the most of their creativity was another WISE Awards Winner. The project brought creative arts professionals together with students to help them prepare for the world of work.
Part 3 - Teacher Training, Ghana
In Sub-Saharan Africa teachers are in short supply and because of that standards are sometimes not very high. But one scheme offers hard-pressed teachers the chance to improve their skills, offering them school-based training.
