Teacher Training Programmes, Tanzania


After a successful pilot in 2011, we entered Phase 1 of our model in this region to develop a sustainable, peer-led teacher training program.

  • Full Project Summary

    Tanzanian teachers were introduced to student-centred strategies and were supported in implementing these concepts into their classes.  The workshop participants were engaged, enthusiastic and receptive.  The Tanzanian teachers also appreciated the opportunity to learner from one another and to share ideas with other teachers from their ward and the teachers from Canada and Kenya. In July 2012 we started the EBB cycle in Tanzania with workshops for teachers, trained some as facilitators and introduced a student leadership conference.

    A strong relationship based on friendship and sharing was fostered between the EBB members, the community leaders and the Tanzanian teachers.

    Connections have been established with a neighbouring ward (King’ori) as a possibility of expanding the project outside of Leguruki. A teacher resource centre is under construction in the village.  There are plans for local teachers to carry on with their professional development through this facility.

  • Information for Educators

    It is important for people to understand that the key to the delivery of quality education is the equitable access of best practices in student-centred methodologies and resources for all teachers.

  • Project Outcome

    Overall In-Country Program Goal: Based on identified needs, EBB projects will build capacity within project participants first as teachers and then as facilitators and trainers. At the end of approximately a 4-phase cycle, a sustainable teacher training program will be established whereby in-country participants own and modify peer-training opportunities.

    Facilitator training goal: These workshops are designed to build capacity and empower teachers to take a leadership role as developers and implementers of professional development modules that will address the educational needs of their peers in their communities. Specific topic, concept or subject reinforcement could take place during this set of sessions. Plan for the development and implementation of a strong communication, learning and support network of teachers.

    Teacher training goal: These workshops are designed to promote active learning and learner-centred educational practices that will lead to authentic learning experiences and result in a higher level of literacy, understanding and achievement.
