S. Sudan: UK aids teacher training college


May 11, 2013 (YEI/JUBA) – The British government, through its Department for International Development (DFID), has donated 200 primary school textbooks and teacher guides to Yei Teacher Training College (YTTC).

The books, DIFID said in a statement, will assist in training of teachers working in or to be deployed at primary schools and adult learning program centres all over South Sudan.

The donation is part of the ongoing national textbook distribution, aimed at providing teaching materials to the country’s more than 4,900 schools.

Susan Voga, YTTC’s deputy principle for academics, said the textbooks and guides donated are vital for training new and experienced teachers on preparation and execution of the lessons in classrooms.

She however stressed that special attention will be given to transfer skills in the handling and maintenance of the books so they can be used for a long time.

“The primary school textbooks and teacher guides will be added to the extensive library of the college which is efficiently managed by a committed and qualified librarian,” said Voga.

Established in 2001, YTTC is a privately owned, not for profit organisation, offering a full time two year extensive tuition to pre-service teachers and special in-service training courses during the school holidays to employed teachers.

A total of 9.6 million textbooks, produced with funding from the UK aid arm, will be distributed to schools in payams [districts] across all South Sudan’s 10 states.

    UK government is willing crushed out the illiteracy in South Sudan but the ministry of Education both higher and general are committed to do their part in education system. it is great shock if all university of South Sudan still have problem since independent time. because the minister’s children are find for outside study leave the poor children without proper education.
