Description and Impact
We are a vocational training Centre located in Bambui-Bamenda, North West Region of Cameroon. We provide Information and Communication Technology services to people in the community. Students of ages fourteen years and above have been enrolled here and undergone training with us since 2002.
We currently offer our students skills in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and other courses but we have expanded to include an entrepreneurship training. This gives our students and staff access to new opportunities as they learn how to start and grow their own businesses. This training will be ideally developed for the students and staff and integrated into our curriculum for future students.
There are two main parts to this project:
1. A workshop/training for our current staff and students: You would create and lead this training for our group. This could be an intensive workshop lasting a few days or a more part-time training that our students and staff could do while keeping up with their daily tasks. This training should include basic business skills as well as key elements on starting your own business. We would also like the training to include some hands-on elements to keep students engaged and help them directly apply their learning to their future
2. An entrepreneurship curriculum: This would essentially include the same elements as the workshop/training, but the goal would be to update the current one that is integrated into our current curriculum or even create a new course. You would need to tailor the lessons to fit our system and curriculum and create the necessary materials for the course. We would also like you to train the teacher of this course on the updated knowledge to make sure it will be a sustainable project after you leave.
