Teacher Training Degree course in Adaado. In 2014, Iftiin received funding from the Comic Relief charity in the UK to create a teacher training programme in Adaado. The course provides a degree in teaching for the first time ever in the region. The project is funded for five years and in that time it will produce over 100 new teachers, at least 30% of them being female teachers. The course is already having an effect in Iftiin schools with trainees from the course becoming teaching assistants helping to reduce class sizes. The project solves one of Iftiin’s problems with recruiting enough teachers for its schools, by ensuring a supply of locally trained and locally resident teachers who have high levels of skill and commitment to long term teaching in Iftiin schools.
