The Program starts every 6 months, the next period starts at the 1st of August 2011
The program is 26 months long and target people from all over the world without any religious, race and age distinction.
- 12 months in Denmark at one of our three school centers

The main purposes of the 12 months program is to train Development Instructors to be active and competent creators and instructors in Development
both for children with special needs in Denmark, and at their project in Africa.
The program consists of theoretical studies divided into three different periods:
1. Denmark Period
2. Raising Awareness
3. Africa - Project Skills
Practical studies and work:
The practical studies and work are carried out at the school of accommodation and consist of various tasks such as: teaching, social work, maintenance
and office work, but also cleaning and dishwashing. Basically the DI will be taking part of running the school in all of its aspects together with the staff at the
school. The DIs will also take part in organising cultural-, music- and sport events, working with maintenance at a building weekend and put up a theatre
In the 12 months period as a Development Instructor at a Humana project in Angola, Mozambique, Malawi, Guinea Bissau, the DI will have the possibility
to work with people in the poorest part of the world. You will choose a specific project and will specialize your preparation towards this during the last six
months of your stay in Denmark.

There are no specific academic requirements, but your profile is expected to match the requirements of the school. You also need to be able to communicate
