Teaching Future Leaders
BISG has teamed up with TFL Education to provide the opportunity for everyone at British International School Gambia (students, support staff, teaching staff, senior leadership staff and Board of Directors) to have access to leadership development programmes to support their academic, professional, and social success.
All our students will study the Future Leaders Programme by the Royal Charted Management Institute in the U.K through TFL Education. In addition, this partnership will provide the business community in The Gambia to access the Royal Chartered Management Institute’s prestigious Chartered Manager Status.
All Key Stage 3 students (aged 11 – 14 years) will follow TFL Education’s ‘Learning to Lead’ programme – Year 7 (Born to Lead), Year 8 (Taking the Lead), Year 9 (Being a Good Leader). Learning to Lead consists of three independent modules (Born to Lead, Taking the Lead, Being a Good Leader), each designed and specifically written to support the teaching of character through leadership. The programme focuses on teaching the knowledge, language, values and behaviours that underpin effective leadership and provides a framework that complements the delivery of PSHCE and SMSC education.
