GCA education services is aimed at working directly with all stakeholders, in particular: headteachers, school staff, parents, governors/trustees, voluntary agencies and teacher training organizations.

GCA aims to ensure that all children are provided with high quality education that enables pupils to fulfill their potential by removing barriers to learning, with a focus on the classroom and teaching.

GCA’s international focus is Africa and we are currently working in Kenya and Nigeria. GCA is promoting the teaching of human rights and the safeguarding and protection of children in schools. To ensure that school leaders and staff in private and international schools in Africa know and understand how to meet international standards of safeguarding and child protection, GCA urges schools to do a comprehensive on-line international safeguarding training and testing provided by SAFE (a reputed organisation focused on international safeguarding standards) that offers individual staff safeguarding and child protection accreditation.

GCA also prepares international schools in Africa for accreditation by supporting them to meet the British Schools Overseas: Standards for Schools. Working in partnership with a reputable company in the UK, GCA offers online international safeguarding and child protection training and certification.  GCA is currently working in East Africa and West Africa. With a strong commitment to school improvement based on in-depth reviews of a school’s current position, GCA education services are excellent value for money.
