The government has ordered 3,000 colleges trainers back to class to bridge skills gap, in new reforms to improve teaching in technical institutions. Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) PS Julius Jwan said the trainers do not have teaching background and must undergo fresh training.
“We want these tutors to be trained on the method and practice of teaching, what we call pedagogy training. Some of them only mastered technical aspects of their trade but we want them to know how to impart those skills to learners,” said Jwan. The first group of the tutors to undergo training will start classes on February 4, Jwan said.
