Humana People to People’s Teacher Training
We have won a special Commonwealth Prize for DNS teacher training In Mozambique.
Humana People to People’s Teacher Training Colleges in Mozambique have been given a special Commonwealth education award for bringing modern teaching to rural schools.
Innovative education projects were honoured at Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers on 29 August and ADPP Mozambique won one of the two special awards:
“The Steve Sinnott award for Commonwealth Teachers was given to Teachers of the Future, a project in Mozambique, which judges said had brought modern teaching to rural schools and emphasised the use of local resources. The award is given in honour of the late Steve Sinnott, former General Secretary of the UK’s National Union of Teachers, and recognises the practice which contributes most to teacher professional development.”
We congratulate ADPP and all the teachers training colleges operated by the Humana People to People members in Mozambique, Angola, Malawi, India, DR Congo, Zambia and Guinea Bissau.
The winning project of the overall Commonwealth Education Good Practice Award was “A community-based project from Rwanda to ensure equitable access to nine years of basic, quality education and skills”
The projects awarded were selected among 123 applications from 27 countries submitted for the third round of the awards.
