Enhancing Teacher's Pedagogical Skills through the Zambian Education School-Based Training (Zest) Project in Selected Schools of Central Province in Zambia

Education in Zambia has been a priority since independence in 1964. As a signatory to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Zambia ascribes to goal number 4, addressing quality education. However, the country's efforts for quality education continue to be hampered by several critical factors, including but not limited to: (i) limited teaching and learning materials, (ii) non-conducive learning environment, (iii) inadequate Early Childhood Education (ECE) provision, (iv) non-effective pedagogical skills among some teachers (v) and limited learner teacher contact time etc.
