Induction Courses

The Ladima Film Academy Induction Programme for Students

The induction programme engages with the new students as soon as they come into the institution; helping them adjust and feel comfortable with their new learning environment (onsite or online learning), the ethos and culture of the institution, and provides an opportunity before the course work commences for them to build bonds with other students and faculty members. 

At the start of the induction, the incumbents learn about the institutional policies, processes, practices, culture and values, and their mentor groups are formed.

The induction programme also allows students to express their hopes and aspirations in enrolling into the academy.

Our Instructors

The Ladima Foundation has partnered with a number of respected organisations and professionals to develop and teach these courses. The courses across the disciplines have been developed by world-renowned experts with a particular focus on the African environment and also starting from a feminist perspective.
