Our life skills courses are designed to empower participants, familiarize participants with their personal identity, strengths and weaknesses, and discover ways to deal with the various challenges they encounter. Our aim is to help them better understand themselves and their abilities, and aid in their choosing of an appropriate academic profession, with the ability to cope with the challenges in their studies or later in employment. The course syllabus will be tailored to meet individual needs with program participants.
The following is how the courses in life skills will be conducted:
Finding Candidates: During this stage, the relevant candidates will be identified for participating in our courses on life skills.
Coordinating Expectations and Sorting: In this phase, a personal interview will be conducted, during which an in-depth introductory conversation with the course facilitator will be held with participants, in order to adjust the course content to fit the participants appropriately.
Course Material Development: The course materials will be developed with reference to the needs of the diagnosed participants. The materials will be developed by professional instructors.
Accessibility of the material for people with disabilities: In this phase, the course materials will be accessed according to the types of disability of the course participants. These accommodations include, but are not limited to, braille, magnification, recording, and transcription.
Quality control: Various actions will be taken to ensure the quality of learning in the course, including,
Professional supervision of the study material developed by a certified computer instructor.
Control of the level of material transfer in the classroom – Each teacher will be supervised at the beginning of their work by AlManarah staff.
Participant Feedback – Feedback questionnaires will be sent to course participants three times (initially, mid-course and end-of-course) and this feedback will be integrated into the program.
Feedback received in individual and group conversations with participants – Individual calls are held by the program coordinator once a month throughout the program, and group meetings are held once a month by the program coordinator. Furthermore, phone calls and sample calls will be made by the AlManarah project manager to receive ongoing reports from the coordinators.
Assessment of progress in the course:
During the course, progress will be assessed in two stages, mid-course and end-of-course. A test will be taken at each of these points, and the test results will be compared to ascertain participant growth.
