Teacher Training Education Project

Following the Universal Primary Education (UPE 1997) and the Universal Post-Primary Education and Training(UPPET 2007) reforms, access to education has substantially increased in Uganda. This has led to the expansion of existing schools and establishment of more primary, secondary and tertiary institutions. These gains have made a profound contribution to improving the education sector nation wide. However,there is a growing concern on the declining quality of education due to the massive influx of students in existing schools. In this context, providing teachers capable of delivering high quality education is crucial to improving the education sector and fulfilling the United Nations Sustainable Goal 4 which is, "To ensure equitable and inclusive quality education and promote life long learning opportunities for all."

In order to achieve this objective, the Government of Uganda received a grant from the Kingdom of Belgium to finance the Ugandan-Belgian project entitled Teacher Training Education (TTE) Project. The project is jointly executed by the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) and the Belgian Development Agency(Enabel).

The first phase of the project was initiated in 2012-2017 for a period of 5 years and made considerable gains and improvements in teacher education within National Teachers' Colleges. In order to build on these gains, the second phase of project was launched in 2017-2021 for a period of 4 years.

OBJECTIVE AND SCOPE OF WORK
