The Government of Mozambique and the Ministry of Education and Human Development (MINEDH) aim to develop a continuous training strategy for secondary school teachers in Mozambique. The University of Helsinki Centre for Continuing Education HY+ was selected to offer technical support and expertise for the project.
The Government of Mozambique and the Ministry of Education and Human Development (MINEDH) aim to strengthen the know-how of secondary school teachers in different subjects, and to involve teachers in a career-long training process. This helps to progressively strengthen the quality of teaching in Mozambique.
The three-year project with HY+ aims to develop an in-service training strategy for teachers. The project will start this July, and It includes analysing teachers’ current know-how and needs for in-service training and benchmarking international practices in creating similar continuous training strategies. A group of educational experts from Mozambique will also visit Finland to learn about Finnish in-service teacher training.
HY+ has gathered international teacher training specialists for the project from the University of Helsinki’s Faculty of Educational Sciences in Finland, and the Universidade Pedagógica de Maputo in Mozambique.
“The Faculty of Educational Sciences at the University of Helsinki considers cooperation with Mozambique to be very important”, says Vice Dean of International affairs, Professor Arto Kallioniemi. “When we visited Mozambique a few years ago, we met people who were very enthusiastic about teaching. It is a great honour and pleasure to be involved in the development of teacher education together with local actors.”
The University of Helsinki’s Faculty of Educational Sciences is Finland’s leading unit of research and teaching in educational sciences. All HY+’s services are developed in close collaboration with the faculty. Globally, HY+ offers services, particularly for the educational sector and helps organisations that are keen
on developing their functions through education.
