PfP Blog Partners for Possibility - transforming learning, one school at a time

Category: PfP Blog

Article by Iain Patton

We aren't going to solve our problems with the thinking which led to them. So if we want a better society and a healthier planet it's time to shake things up a bit.

But what I didn't expect, was to find an absolute earthquake of a solution in a South African township!

PfP Blog LiftOff entry for PfP

Category: PfP Blog

See how Inmarsat is supporting education in Cape Town Government Schools

On a recent holiday to Cape Town, Inmarsat’s Chief Commercial Officer Alison Horrocks had the chance to head to the local office and spend some time with the staff to get a better understanding of how they support Inmarsat’s business in the region, and wider afield across Africa and the Middle East.  Alison also found out first-hand how G2 and Enterprise BUs are supporting four under-resourced Government schools in the Cape Town Area.  This is through an innovative leadership development programme, known as Partners for Possibility, or PfP.  The PfP programme is run by Symphonia for South Africa, has been running for 5 years and has made a positive difference to more than 500 schools across the whole of South Africa over this period.   PfP joins a business leader in partnership with the principal of a school for a 12 month development period, supported by leadership workshops and a qualified coach.  The focus of the programme is to help develop better leadership skills in the principal, which then flow down to the School Management Team, Governing Body and ultimately the community of parents, with a consequent improvement in educational outcomes.
