Frostig Traineeship Program
The Frostig Traineeship Program runs for 1 year at a time and is open to new, Ugandan graduates who completed an undergraduate course related to inclusive education. Being a Frostig Trainee exposes you to the practical application of your knowledge and skills related to learning difficulties. It offers you hands-on experience in a paid position, as you get skilled up for future employment in this field.

Are you interest in becoming a Frostig Trainee? We will be recruiting for our 3rd cohort around February 2022!
