Tanzania has made great strides to increase access to primary and secondary school education over the past decade. Join this pioneering fellowship in Morogoro, which aims to support Tanzania meet its next goal of improving the quality of education.
LRTT work alongside Fundacion Paraguaya to support teachers in Morogoro. Through a cycle of workshops, coaching and observations Tanzanian teachers will be supported to lead their training.
Fundacion Paraguaya support 25 schools in Morogoro delivering entrepreneurial education and teacher training focused on “learning by doing, earning and saving”. However, demand for teacher training is high and they are really excited to partner with LRTT to continue transforming education in Morogoro.
You will be collected by your Team Leaders at Dar-es-Salaam and taken directly to your home for the next month. A Swahili lesson and orientation will help you settle in before you visit schools, meet teachers and become part of the community. You will develop a first hand awareness of the education system that will inform your training sessions.
Team Leaders will run training and support your planning for the training sessions you will deliver in pairs. Between training sessions you will be working closely with teacher to provide in-school support and coach to help embed new teaching strategies.
In the final conference you will co-deliver training with your Tanzanian colleagues and create a network of Tanzanian teachers who will lead improvements in teaching and learning in their schools. You will finish your time in Tanzania on the paradise island of Zanzibar.
Through LRTT I have really reflected on my own practice and feel like I have become a better teacher. The balance between free time and work time was perfect and it was great to have such a strong team feeling throughout the project.
Working in pairs meant we could share ideas and come up with really inspiring sessions. This meant I was more confident in planning and delivering the sessions and the whole experience has improved my motivation to continue to teach.
I was incredibly impressed with the work LRTT is able to do considering the number of limitations it operates under. Promoting a culture of collaboration and peer observation, encouraging the idea of lead teachers within schools is a model I believe will be beneficial to teaching in Tanzania.
By working in close partnership with locally-led teacher development organisations and by taking a data-driven approach to our work, we are able to track teacher development to evaluate the impact of our training and continually improve our course.
A professional and cultural exchange between teachers working in very different contexts, brought together by a passion for education.
Build meaningful relationships with like-minded teachers, open to learn and share their experiences, and grow through a unique shared experience.
An opportunity to learn from inspiring people, share new experiences, and create lifelong memories.
