Dubai Cares, part of United Arab Emirates (UAE) Vice President, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s Global Initiatives, has announced that it will fund a three-year teacher training programme in Ghana to upgrade kindergarten education and enable KG schoolchildren to flourish in primary school.
The programme valued at $469,000 is in partnership with Sabre Education and is set to benefit 7,420 teachers directly and 7,700 KG schoolchildren aged 4-6 years indirectly, in the country’s Central and Western regions.
Dubai Cares’ support aims to enhance early years’ pre-service teacher training in Ghana, building on five years of successful implementation and replication of Sabre Education’s Fast-track Transformational Teacher Training programme in the central and western regions of Ghana.
The programme also seeks to upgrade existing kindergarten classrooms through teacher training and learning resources, converting them into model practice classrooms for KG1 and KG2.
Moreover, the programme aims to promote sustainability through empowering the teacher training colleges and Ghana Education Service to continue supporting and monitoring newly qualified teachers.
