Supporting teacher training in Kilimanjaro Region
Last week we continued activities supporting our commitment to improving education in the Kilimanjaro region. We supported Second Chance Education Centre during their planning meeting for a teacher training workshop. In January 2011, Honey Badger will be hosting the workshop for 30 teachers from rural schools. The workshop, led by Second Chance Education Centre and Friends of Tanzania, will run for a week and consist of a series of sessions imparting new teaching skills. Six trained teachers from overseas will be coming to Tanzania to join the Second Chance teachers and the directors of Honey Badger, to teach up-to-date training pedagogy. The training will be participatory and be a unique opportunity for the selected teachers, many of whom have not received any training on such methods. Whilst the government makes considerable efforts to improve education in Tanzania, there are many challenges, including a lack of skilled motivated teachers, poor quality class rooms, insufficient teaching resources to name but a few. We are not in a position to address many of the issues, however we can support the efforts of others. The training will not only provide a few teachers with different skills but will also serve as a significant motivating factor for them in their work. During the workshop we will spend time with the teachers and ask them for some testimonials, giving you a small snap shot of what life is like for a teacher in rural Tanzania. We will make sure we keep you up to date!
