The session brought together all the forty-two trainers who are running the training project of teachers across the fourteen Districts in the country. The aim of the meeting was for the trainers from Five Districts who have already trained Hundred teachers to share their experiences with the others from the remaining nine Districts. Those who have trained also had a lot to learn from their colleagues on the different approaches they used to ensure success in the pilot phase.
The team had a chance to review the results from the Five Smart hubs. The trainers shared the experiences on the performance of each of the eight modules being certified in.
The Director of Teachers Training Program at AIMS congratulated the trainers for the achievement so far where the overall pass rate stands at 74% for the 100 teachers in the eight modules. It was agreed that the Centres that have trained twenty teachers each will now increase the number to forty teachers per center where three trainers are allocated the training. The other nine centers will start with a group of twenty teachers each so that ICDL Africa observes the performance before the increase of the numbers so that each center trains forty teachers per session.
The ICDL Africa Business Technology & Training Specialist, Jospeh Mugisha presented more to the team about the ATS as the Programme Manager, Perter Maina also emphasized on the best practice for trainers to achieve the best results and maintain the Quality Assurance Standards.
The management of AIMS informed the participants that an official launch of the 14 Smart classrooms will be taking place on 6th February 2020 and they are expecting several AIMS, Rwanda Education Board and the Ministry of Education staff to be present at each location. ICDL Africa team will also be represented in a number of the centers.
