ZWEDRU CITY, July 15 (LINA) - Sixty-five untrained teachers from the Tchein Education District in Grand Gedeh County have undergone a three-day training to upgrade their skills and improve their performance in the classroom.
The workshop, organized and sponsored by the Danish INGO IBIS, was intended to assist Government train teachers presently in the classrooms who have no formal teacher training.
IBIS Education Advisor, David Mwaninki, told the Liberia News Agency that the workshop will be extended to other education districts in the county to enhance
the skills and techniques of the teachers.
They were drilled in teaching methodologies, including classroom management, lesson planning and lesson presentation, according to Mr. Edwin Tarley, one of the facilitators of the training.
He said most of the beneficiaries are on government payroll, but have no teaching certificates from the teacher training institutes.
He disclosed that certificates would be awarded to participants at the close of the training in all education districts of the county before school opens for the first semester of the 2014/15 academic year.
Meanwhile, participants of the training have expressed thanks and appreciation to IBIS for the opportunity afforded them to improve their teaching skills.
