From the Anglican Alliance
The Anglican Alliance have been awarded their fourth Commonwealth Professional Fellowships, bringing four Anglican leaders in education to the UK for a seven-week cultural and learning experience.
From May-June 2015 four Anglican leaders in education will visit the UK to take part in shared learning opportunities with schools and educational departments.
Deborah Domingo, General Manager of Anglican Primary Schools in Belize; Rajamani Manuel, a principle in Sri Lanka; Neelam Chughati, a senior teacher from Pakistan; and Martin Odidi, Diocesan Education Secretary, Diocese of Kaduna, Nigeria, will all take part in the scheme.
The programme includes meetings with diocesan education coordinators, primary and secondary school placements, a short course at the University of Nottingham, and sessions with institutions such as the UK Department of Education and the Department for International Development (DFID).
The scholars will also be connected to previous fellowship scholars to share their experiences and connect with other Anglican education professionals.
Scholars will be welcomed to the UK through a week of orientation, visits to Lambeth Palace and Westminster Abbey, and an introduction to the Anglican Alliance, the Anglican Communion Office, and programme partners.
Whilst taking part in the scheme and learning about life and education in the UK, the four scholars will share their own experiences and educate others through the mutually beneficial programme.
Companion link dioceses are also being contacted to enable the scholars to visit different parts of the UK and build relational links across the Anglican Communion.
