Teacher training

The project aims to increase the number of skilled primary school teachers in rural areas by enabling ten students (of whom 50% are women) to complete the three-year pre-service training at ADPP’s government-accredited Teacher Training Centre in Bachil, Cacheu region. The training course builds on an innovative and child-centred approach combining a rigorous thematic curriculum with practical experience in ten local schools, engaging both school staff and the local community. The project engages parents, in-service teachers and headmasters through the establishment of parent-teacher associations, school-based activities and community outreach actions focusing on children’s right to education, a teaching and learning process that integrates gender-specific learning needs, and promotes girls’ school attendance. These activities aim to enhance the quality of rural education and to raise the profile of teachers amongst community members.
