Integrating vocational skills in the high school curriculum to enhance quality education at Hope Academy

At Hope Academy students are not only exposed to theoretical academic work but practical trade skills as well. In this picture Senior two (Grade 9) are having a tailoring class. This has made them gain hands-on experience in various skills.

We hope that these skills shall enable them create their own jobs after their studies for those who may not go on for high education. As for those who shall proceed with further studies, they can use their skills to get a side income in addition to their main profession.

Vocational training combined with regular high school curriculum is a unique opportunity that students don’t get at other schools in the area. Eventually, we shall be adding other vocational programs such as, mechanics, metal works, carpentry, and others.
