Students for a Better Future’s core mission is to provide students displaying academic potential, who are financially needy and demonstrate resilience and tenacity, with the opportunity to study at some of the best high schools and post–secondary institutions in Cape Town. South African-born Sue Struengmann and her German husband Dr Andreas Struengmann first recognised the need to invest in South Africa’s children through education whilst working together in the rural areas of the Eastern Cape. Both were working in Tsolo at the time, Dr Struengmann as a medical intern at the mission hospital and Mrs Struegmann, in the local school. They were struck by the lack of resources available to the community. Mrs Struengmann recalls that there wasn’t enough medicine and not even pens and pencils available to learners at the school. At that point, they made a promise to each other that if they were ever successful enough, they would do their part to help young people in this country get a good education.

ExploreHealthCareers.org is a free, peer-reviewed website designed to educate students and advisors about health careers. ExploreHealthCareers.org’s mission is to help solve two urgent problems in U.S. health care: the under-representation of minorities in the workforce and the shortage of health professionals in medically underserved communities. ExploreHealthCareers.org hopes to help build a stronger health care workforce by providing easy access to updated, peer-reviewed career descriptions that inspire and motivate students to find health careers that suit them. Their vision is to see the health professionals of tomorrow be highly skilled and motivated, and as diverse as the patients they serve. Considering that, health care is a vast field that offers a range of diverse opportunities, it is important that all student research before deciding on a position to make sure you choose one that’s a good fit for them. People can start with the Career Explorer in their website, as it collects details about all different types of health care positions to allow you to compare and contrast those that interest you. Furthermore, the best health care practitioners are committed to giving their patients the best care possible. These health care practitioners prioritize keeping up with the latest developments in the field, continuing to study and learn long after their initial schooling ends. If you have a similar interest in lifelong learning, it’s a good idea to consider entering the health care field. Finally, Health care is increasingly focusing on team work as patients’ recovery depends more and more on how well each member of the team performs his or her specific function and how well they communicate and collaborate with one another. Even dentists — 70% of whom work in a solo private practice — usually supervise and work closely with several staff members. When choosing a health care position, you’ll want to consider the amount of teamwork it requires to ensure it’s a good fit for you and your working style.

Wordworks is a South African non-profit organisation that focuses on early language and literacy development in the first eight years of children’s lives. Since 2005 they have worked in under-resourced communities with adults best positioned to positively impact young children’s language and literacy development – parents and caregivers, family and community members, home-visitors, early childhood development practitioners and Grade R to Grade 3 teachers. They are working collaboratively to grow an informed, capable, resourced and motivated network of schools, organisations and institutions that promote the importance of, and work effectively for the improvement of, children’s early language and literacy, through their association with their programmes and materials. Wordworks offers training, resources and support for partners who wish to use their early language and literacy programmes in their own networks. Their programmes all include messaging about the importance of language for literacy development and the need to build children’s home language in the early years as a foundation for the acquisition of a second language. They advocate for children to have access to multilingual, language rich stories and books, as well as meaningful experiences with print. They also know that letter-sound knowledge and phonological awareness are key predictors of whether children learn to read and write, and have developed resources and guidelines to support these important foundations for literacy. Their programmes are based on an emergent literacy perspective and the idea that learning to read and write is a process that happens over time in the context of supportive and responsive relationships. They offer five main programmes, which are used by their network of partners which include preschools, schools, libraries, community organisations, training and resource NGOs, tertiary institutions, education districts and other government departments. Programmes are sustained through ongoing relationships with Wordworks, including refresher training and events, input and guidance, access to resources and opportunities, sharing of learning, and support for programme monitoring and evaluation. They develop, produce and distribute innovative, high quality multilingual materials to support early language and literacy learning. They invest in public education and advocacy, sharing knowledge and ideas to open doors for all children.

Esade es una institución académica global integrada por una Business School, una Law School y un área de Executive Education. Esta institución es conocida por la calidad de su educación, su visión internacional y un enfoque claro en el desarrollo holístico de la persona. Esade aplica un modelo de aprendizaje propio e innovador, basado en la interiorización de valores y el desarrollo de competencias profesionales y directivas. El equipo de profesores está siempre en la búsqueda de generar nuevo conocimiento que contribuya a mejorar la dinámica de las organizaciones, la empresa y la práctica jurídica. Además, la institución pone a disposición una plataforma de encuentro y debate con el propósito de contribuir a la mejora de la sociedad. La actividad educativa que se desarrolla en Esade se configura como un sistema de doble vía, en el que profesorado y estudiantes co-construyen y comparten responsabilidades sobre el proceso de aprendizaje, reproduciendo la complejidad de los entornos profesionales y directivos a los que en su día deberá hacerse frente. El profesorado continúa desempeñando un rol estratégico, en primer lugar, asegurando la calidad de las fuentes de conocimiento y aportando conocimientos frontera desde la investigación; en segundo lugar, ofreciendo las claves para analizar las posibles soluciones a los retos de aprendizaje planteados, así como las condiciones que las hacen más efectivas; y, finalmente, guiando a los estudiantes en la transferencia de lo aprendido a nuevas situaciones de aprendizaje. En Esade la metodología de enseñanza es denominada “Student first” que comprende los siguientes aspectos: Va de la información al conocimiento. El énfasis pasa de transmitir información a crear meta-conocimiento aplicable al análisis de realidades concretas y el profesorado pone a prueba a sus estudiantes, que consolidan sus aprendizajes con base en retos y proyectos orientados a la acción. Los conceptos básicos se trabajan con anterioridad a las sesiones presenciales. Se utilizan formatos online, lecturas, videos y pruebas que confirman la adquisición de los conceptos básicos necesarios y permiten asistir a clase; el aula es para clarificar, profundizar, aplicar y contrastar perspectivas. Las plataformas y contenidos digitales adquieren un peso fundamental en el proceso. Estos recursos permiten trasladar fuera del aula una parte importante del aprendizaje individual, de las interacciones entre profesores y estudiantes, e incluso de la misma evaluación de los aprendizajes. Se aprende en modo "gran angular" saltando las barreras de las disciplinas académicas. El mundo no es un puzzle de asignaturas diseñadas por profesorado desde sus respectivos silos de conocimiento. Es una realidad compleja que hay que aprender a entender y manejar de un modo multidisciplinar.

The college which would become the University of Chester was founded in 1839 by such pioneers as the 19th-century prime ministers William Gladstone and the Earl of Derby, and a future Archbishop of Canterbury. The institution's original buildings were the first in the country to be purpose-built for the professional training of teachers. The first cohort of 10 male student teachers had been taught in temporary premises in Nicholas Street from February 1840, until increasing student numbers led to a move to further temporary accommodation in Bridge Street later that year. The need for a permanent site led the Dean and Chapter of Chester Cathedral to donate land adjacent to Parkgate Road, and the new facilities were opened in 1842 for the 50 student teachers and their school pupils. The Parkgate Road Campus has subsequently been developed to accommodate the needs of students, and the University still provides higher education in this location and at other sites in the city and beyond. Education qualifications remain significant and are now a fraction of the 420 course combinations on offer. In the 20th Century, the institution steadily expanded its student numbers and the variety and nature of its courses, which range from Animation to Zoo Management. The University of Chester now has over 1,700 staff and some 20,000 students, drawn from the United Kingdom, Europe and further afield, particularly from the United States, India, China, Nigeria, Turkey, Uganda, Pakistan, Ghana, Bangladesh, Qatar, Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. MPhil and PhD qualifications are an established and growing area of activity, with the University gaining the powers to award its own research degrees in 2007. The emphasis is very much on research that has practical benefits both economically and culturally, and the University provides consultancy support across a variety of areas of expertise. Recent projects have included helping to develop England’s first ‘carbon-neutral’ village, discovering a vitamin compound which reduces the risk of heart disease and dementia, translating the Bible into British Sign Language, and research into understanding the psychological impact of cancer to improve wellbeing and quality of life for patients and their families. Development of well-respected courses in Health and Social Care, Humanities, Business and Management, Arts and Media, Social Sciences, Science and Engineering, Medicine, Dentistry and Clinical Sciences, and Education and Children’s Services has further extended the University’s work and connections with industry, commerce and the professions. Many millions of pounds are continually invested in the accommodation and resources to enhance the student experience, and there is a strong focus on making students feel supported and at home.
