Concern Worldwide Holds 5-day Teacher Training

By Johnson Bobby Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondent

BUCHANAN, January 20 (LINA) - Concern Worldwide Liberia has begun a five-day Training of Trainers workshop for over 30 of its staff in Early Grade Reading and Math in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.

The workshop, which began on Monday January 19, is intended to upgrade the literacy and numeracy skills of teachers, trainers, field officers and cluster coordinators.

It is being conducted in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Making remarks at the opening session, Concern Education Program Manager Lawrence Peters said the workshop is also intended to empower participants conduct “residential training” for teachers across the county in the latter part of January.

Peters noted that over 600 teachers from 100 schools in all five districts in the county are expected to benefit from the training before the commencement of the academic year in February.

Speaking on behalf of the participants, Concern Districts 3 and 4 Cluster Coordinator, Louise Massago, said they are being trained in order to inculcate basic skills in Math and Reading to teachers for the residential training slated for late January.

She observed that most of the teachers in schools operating in Bassa do not have the basic Teacher Training Certificates while others with the certificates also need basic training as the curriculum develops.

Topics include Teacher Knowledge Survey, Introduction to Components of Reading, Instructional Strategy-Pacing, Psychological Awareness in Independent Practice and Guided Practice, among others.
