With three pilot projects in Lusaka, Chipata and Solwezi in Zambia, and one in Mbeere in Kenya, new pilots are due to start up shortly in Fiji, Guyana and Dhaka.
Students can now register online via the Agents of Change page on the website, which contains news about recent developments in the programme. Registered students and mentors can also access the modules via the website.
There are two new forums on the Alliance website – one for registered Agents of Change students, and one for mentors. You can access these via the Agents of Change page on the website.
And for everyone who has expressed an interest in the programme – either to study or be a mentor – there is a newsletter that has gone out this week.
Alliance staff are still working through the big response to the initial launch of Agents of Change: if you have emailed in to express your interest, but have not yet been matched with a group, please bear with us. As soon as we have the present round of pilots set up, we will be starting on a second round.
For existing students, please remember to make early email contact with your mentor. This is the person who will provide you with feedback throughout your studies and sign off your work at the end so you can get your certificate. You need to contact your mentor at the start of your studies to get advice on your project and your study diary, and then after you have completed modules two, four and six. Finally you need to contact you mentor right at the end of your studies so that you can get the approval for the award of your certificate.
If you have any queries, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
