Overview of the Pedagogy4Change programme

Train in Denmark · 12 months

Studies, investigations, action, research and saving up money for the programme through assistance work at independent schools and care homes in Denmark.

Participate in relevant courses and write study assignments on topics related to pedagogy, social education, teaching and learning. Learn about the underlying causes of poverty and inequality in the world, about power dynamics, neo-colonialism and how to challenge your own stereotypes.

Learn and practice practical skills such as maintenance, gardening, simple construction work, and project management. Learn how to manage events as a team activity.

Be part of an international community of like-minded activists and share responsibilities.

Train in Malawi · 8 months

You will be based at one of DAPP Malawi’s teacher training colleges.

Here, you will listen and learn from projects leaders, teachers, students and leaders from the surrounding villages who are running long-term projects that focus on teaching and learning.

Apart from providing pre-service training for teachers in village schools, the colleges train caregivers who work at Early Childhood Development Centres (pre-schools) in the local area.

After a month of familiarising yourself with the activities at and around the campus, you will liaise with Malawian community leaders and project leaders and contribute with your manpower and skills with whatever is needed.

Reflect & Share · 4 months

Back in Denmark, you reflect on your experiences so far, and on your learning process. You evaluate on the different practice periods and what you achieved together with others.

This process allows for improving the programme and underpins the quality of your learning. It makes sure that you gained valuable knowledge and understanding about what “Pedagogy for Change” entails.

You share your experiences with audiences in Europe – in schools, universities, libraries, cafés or on the streets. You find artful ways of brining your messages to the public – through presentations, exhibitions, street theatre or other.

You also finish up study modules from One World University to earn the credits needed for your Diploma in Pedagogy.
