Training: Equipping Champions for Education

The Alif Laila Book Bus Society is dedicated to empowering educators, librarians, interns, and creative practitioners through comprehensive training programs. These initiatives are designed to foster a love of reading, enhance pedagogical skills, and nurture creativity and critical thinking in children.

Our librarian training focuses on developing the ability to create captivating book collections and manage mobile libraries effectively. Our teacher training emphasizes innovative teaching methods that integrate storytelling, interactive activities, and technology to enrich the classroom experience. Internship programs offer aspiring educators hands-on experience, working alongside seasoned professionals to further the mission of the Alif Laila Book Bus Society.

Additionally, training for creative practitioners is aimed at equipping them with the skills necessary to design and deliver compelling workshops in maker spaces. This not only enhances children’s creativity but also bolsters their problem-solving abilities.

In collaboration with Creativity, Culture and Education (CCE) in the UK, our training department is enhancing the learning experiences of children and young people worldwide, preparing them for future opportunities and careers. CCE’s programs emphasize the importance of creativity in learning, aiming to bridge the educational attainment gap.

Our training methodologies, including the recent “Homegrown Teachers” initiative developed with Paul Collard, focus on active learning, dialogic teaching, and incorporating mother tongue education. This approach is now being replicated in Pakistan, demonstrating our commitment to sustainable change in education and continuous learning for all ages.

Through Creative Partnerships, we provide tools that nurture and develop creative skills in both children and adults, significantly impacting their ability to learn and grow continuously.
