The Ubuntu Leaders Academy is an innovative non-formal education programme that has been tested in a wide range of national and international contexts in several training periods.

The project is designed to empower people with high leadership potential, through an inner journey that challenges the way each person sees themselves and interacts with others, making them willing, as Gandhi said, to fight for the change they want to see in the world.

The Ethics of Care is one of the Ubuntu axis, so this year the Aver-o-Mar School Group held a different kick-off to the new school year! It has been decided to set up the Ubuntu Welcoming, an initiative that aims to bring the Ubuntu ethos to the start of the 2023/2024 school year.

Between 8 and 18 September, various activities were organised for teachers, non-teaching staff and students in our school. The aim was to: encourage the integration of the school community in this new school year; stimulate self-knowledge, mutual recognition and the visibility of all the members of our educational community; foster a relationship and school environment based on empathy and the ethics of care; create a suitable context for the development of positive relationships and, finally, promote and strengthen ties between students, teachers, psychologists, technical staff and non-teaching staff.
