Context:

The education sector in Uganda has experienced a great transformation over the past 15 years. In 1997 the government of Uganda launched the Universal Primary Education strategy. By consequence enrolment in primary education soared. Because of its success (at least in numbers), an equal investment strategy became necessary for secondary education to provide further schooling for the rising number of pupils who finished primary education. The Universal Secondary Education strategy was then put into action in 2007, leading to an instant increase in enrolment figures in secondary education as well. Recognizing the importance of ensuring the quality and relevance of the education that the children receive, providing teachers capable of delivering education of high quality is considered by the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) as the single most important input in ensuring the successful delivery of the UPPET programme. Therefore upon initiative of the Government of Uganda, the Embassy of Belgium in Uganda has agreed to support interventions geared towards the improvement of teacher training provided by the National Teachers Colleges (NTCs), as well as other Colleges responsible for training tutors and lecturers for Business, Technical and Vocational Education and Training (BTVET), including the training of health Tutors.

The Specific objective of the intervention is to provide an improved teaching and practice-oriented learning environment, supported by a strengthened support supervision and visitation (inspections) service, for the most part on four selected colleges.

These objectives will be achieved through capacity building at system (central) level, organizational (colleges) and individual (managers and teachers) level. The project will be executed in co-management.
