The Africa Federation Education Board in collaboration with the Madrasah Centre of Excellence (MCE) and the Africa Federation Tabligh Board (AFTAB) and Capacity Building Group (CBG) organized and conducted the Neuro-Psychology of Learning Program (NPL) from 9th to 13th April for Nairobi Jaffery Academy in Nairobi. The workshops were facilitated by Br. Shabbirhussein Khalfan, and Sis Shama Dewji from CBG. A total of 40 teachers and admin staff were trained in 2 cohorts.

The NPL program is a two-day course aimed at helping teachers better understand themselves, their students, and how to positively inspire the next generation.

NPL focuses on a learner-centred approach to education, which means lessons are centred on each individual child. A combination of formal and informal processes such as collaborative learning (learning something together) and role-modelling creates an attitude that respects differences and self-awareness that children and young people benefit from.

The program gives teachers new ideas on how to motivate positive learning from within the classroom.
