Fifteen (15) elementary school teachers in the Morobe Province of Papua New Guinea, received training to be Resource Teachers in their respective school clusters for their Districts. World Vision in partnership with Nawaeb and Markham District Education Division through the 'Together for Education' (T4E) Project, conducted a 3 day Resource Teachers Training for the 15 selected Resource Teachers who will be the role models to influence and help other elementary teachers around them.
"As head teachers of our school, we lacked knowledge on how to address issues in our schools and this training really helped us and we believe we will now be able to help our schools and other neighboring schools and communities in our Districts", says Mr. Johnson Bingeding, Wagang Luhu Elementary School Teacher in Charge.
With funding support from the Papua New Guinea & Australia Partnership, the resource teachers were trained on how to identify common issues in their schools and communities which currently hinder teaching and learning and to come up with action plans on how to address these issues and share the experience with other schools who can learn from them.
It is hoped that by the end of the T4E project, the Resource Teachers will show improved capacity in facilitating discussions about teaching and learning to contribute to enhancing access to quality elementary education focussed on literacy and numeracy for both girls and boys in Papua New Guinea.
