World Vision Malawi trains 121 teachers

As one way to promote quality education in the country, World Vision Malawi has trained teachers in teaching approaches that promote literacy to accommodate both slow and fast learners in primary schools in Zomba.

Over 121 teachers from 23 primary schools of Ntungulutsi, Chilipa and Chingale zones were trained in capacity building in teaching and learning using locally available resources.

In an interview, World Vision Project Manager for Chingale, Ndamyo Ngosi said after back to school campaigns conducted in the area since 2012, the school enrollment has increased and teachers have been overwhelmed.

Ngosi said “the four day training was aimed at deepening, sharpening and refreshing teaching skills of teachers in order to handle learners with six core elements of language area of study which included listening, speaking, reading, writing, structure of language and critical thinking and reasoning.”

She said teachers learnt the teaching methodologies which are learner centered to capture what they learn and read easily.

Speaking with one participant who is also centre coordinator at Ntungulutsi primary school, Gibson Bwanali said the training was very useful in the sense that teachers were equipped with skills on how they can handle languages effectively.

Bwanali said through literacy boost approaches, learners can read and write more easily than before.

He urged fellow teachers to make use of what they had learned during the training like how to make teaching and learning materials such as ink using locally available resources to promote quality education in Malawi.

The training targeted teachers from Standard 1 to 6 who handle pupils learning how to read and write.

Literacy boost complements Early Grade Reading Activity (EGRA) Programme being implemented by USAID.

    Wow! great initiative indeed from WORLD VISION MALAWI in promoting quality education in Malawi.

    A newly established Dowa-based local Non-governmental organization, GIRL Child Concern{GCC}, is working on implementation of a similar program called “Girl Academic Skill Empowerment{GASE}” in selected primary schools to equip a girl child with vital academic skills so as to enhance her academic excellence.

    Academic skills such as Writing, critical thinking, reading, studying, listening are skills which many learners lack and graduate to secondary schools devoid of such negelected yet vital for academic excellence.

    GCC is therefore looking for funds and or partners to implement the much needed program for learners in the district.
