Teacher Training

It is important to us that our children are educated in classrooms that emphasize and encourage creative and critical thinking and interactive learning. Unfortunately, this is rare in the Tanzanian school system.

After years of research and under the leadership of Melissa Queyquep, The Foundation For Tomorrow launched a government applauded Teacher Training Program in January 2010. Melissa brings over ten years of experience in curriculum development, and her experience collaborating with community educators makes her the perfect person to conduct TFFT’s Teacher Training Program for primary and secondary school teachers.

TFFT believes quality education transforms lives and that teachers and school leaders both play key roles in achieving this. TFFT’s Teacher Training Program works to improve the quality of instruction and management in primary and secondary schools and to ensure that schools are child-friendly, non-stigmatising, gender-sensitive, and supportive of the needs of orphans and vulnerable children.

The training approach is based on adult learning principles and makes use of participatory methodologies. Each session is customized after going through a needs assessment, teacher observations, and discussions with the teachers and the school administration. The program also has a Training of Trainers component, which enables our partner schools to develop in-house training facilitators
