Although access to education increased in the last 15 years, the quality of education is still insufficient. The teaching profession is not highly valued and teacher colleges have a bad reputation. Unemployment is high, especially among young people.
Together with the Ministry of Education and Sports, BTC supports the (re)construction and (re)supplying of four National Teacher Colleges. Besides this, we train lecturers on students-based teaching and learning methods. We also support the implementation of the ‘Skilling Uganda Strategy’, which aims to increase the employability of youth through better quality of instruction and learning in practical skills development.
