To strengthen the capacity of Zambia’s pre-service teacher training institutions
and improve student learning outcomes.
Despite significant investments in early grade literacy in Zambia, pre-service teacher education has largely been excluded from those programs. Transforming Teacher Education activity aims to align pre-service education with current, evidence-based practices in primary schools and in-service education programs. It will help to ensure that all teachers will enter the classroom prepared to help children learn how to read and to provide safe learning environments more broadly.
