In preparation for the second implementation phase of Building Education Foundation Through Innovation and Technology (BEFIT) Programme, with support from Imagine Worldwide, YONECO organized a two-day training of trainers that was held from 16 to 17 November, 2023.
The training was organized to equip various district education officials with technical skills and knowledge about the programme. The trained participants are expected to drill primary school teachers in the schools that will be targeted in the second phase of the programme which will commence in January, 2024.
The training session was attended by Primary Education Advisors (PEAs), Zonal Education Managers and Inspectors (ZEMISOs), Area Coordinating Centre Officers (ACCOs) and Implementation Supporting Field Officers (ISP Field Officers).
BEFIT Project is being led by the Ministry of Education (Moe) in collaboration with various partners including YONECO. The project aims at enhance learning outcomes in reading and numeracy by utilizing tablets as supplementary tools to facilitate accelerated learning among students in Standard 1 to 4. Phase one of the programme successfully commenced in September, 2023 and it has proven to be a success.
