Recently the Director of ELC: Lac Rose, Senegal followed a discussion on the current education in Senegal and the major imbalance between students attaining academic knowledge and much needed 21
century life skills.
In response to this imbalance, ELC Lac Rose is working to help reverse this trend and become Senegal's 1st online school that will allow students to continue attending their current school /university while registering with ELC for a skills-based training online that merges theoretical and practicum knowledge. With personalized follow-up and a flexible work schedule, in addition to their individual work aimed at strengthening their written and oral expression, students will follow academic courses and develop life skills highly valued in global societies including geopolitics, leadership, time management, and research methodology, etc. All courses are offered in in English & French.
The goal of ELC Lac Rose online program is to facilitate a student’s transition to higher education and work life through cross-cutting / socio-emotional skills. Emphasis will be placed on students learning how to use online collaborative tools and strengthen their digital skills. For more information visit:
