Getting Started with Education For All





THE "EDUCATION FOR ALL" DAYS

The Steve Sinnott Foundation's "Education For All Days" (EFA Days) are key events in the campaign aimed at raising awareness and understanding of the need for quality education around the world and encouraging young people to participate in the global movement for education.

This is how they work:

Each EFA day is organised by the teachers or school councils in participating schools in the summer term, every year. On the day there are curriculum based activities to promote understanding of the Right to Education and the Millennium Development Goals. The Foundation provides interesting & exciting resources for Global Citizenship Education. Opportunities are provided for UK schools to link with schools in developing countries as an ongoing consequence of the EFA Days.EFA Days can kick-start fundraising and other ongoing activities in the school. Young people develop a range of skills through participation in the day.

A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO PLANNING YOUR SCHOOL'S EDUCATION FOR ALL DAY

STEP 1 - CHOOSE YOUR DAY

The official date for The Steve Sinnott Foundation Education for All Day is Friday 20th June 2014. But you can do it at any time in the school year, so choose a date and get started!

STEP 2 - CHOOSE AN IDEA

Think about how to run your Education for All Day to raise awareness and campaign within your school community among pupils, teachers, parents, governors and other local schools. If you need ideas to get you started, just take a look at our resources. You could get each class to come up with ideas about how they would like to campaign offer a prize for the best idea and the class that gets the most attention. Get your School Council or create a new "Education for All Day Squad" to meet regularly to talk about the plans, and organise the day.

STEP 3 - SET YOURSELF A TARGET

A good way of getting everyone enthusiastic is to set your school a target this gives everyone something to aim for. You can use the children's real life stories and online materials to tell everyone about how important it is to support Education for All Day.

STEP 4 - TELL EVERYONE

To ensure your campaign is successful, you will need to make sure everyone knows about Education for All Day. Get everyone excited and hold an Education for All Day assembly to announce what is happening and why it is important. You can use our great video in the gallery. Let parents know about Day for Change by sending a letter home, or include a blurb on your school's newsletter or website we have a sample letter available here. You can publicise your event by using the posters in this pack or writing a press release for your local paper. Check out our online resources.

STEP 5 - ON THE DAY

There are loads of resources for you to use on your day - posters, case studies, assembly plans, lesson plans, and quizzes. Download a resource pack on the home page. Don’t forget to take lots of photographs and let everyone see your school's creative ideas for Education for All Day. Once the day is over, send us your photos at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  and we can include them in our gallery! Enjoy yourselves!
