Education Desk conducts seminars to improve governance of schools

The Education Desk of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania (ELCT) recently organized Training of Trainers' seminars on teacher-friendly supervisory methodologies.

Heads of 10 schools, academic coordinators and school managers attended the two-day seminar held in Nyakato Mwanza in mid November 2012. The total number of participants was 16 and they were expected to impact on more than 4,000 students and 1,000 educationists.

One of the inspectors, Mr Eutace Mgawe, (STANDING) in one of his e-mails supporting the seminars, suggested that the capacity building seminars be extended to other inspectors of two districts namely, Sengerema and Kishapu. He said "the seminars will enhance the inspection and make it more meaningful and hence creating a learning atmosphere for both the school teachers and inspectors".
