In May 2018 Headteachers and teachers from Trelales and Heronsbridge school visited schools in Moshi Tanzania.
The visit began with a British Council Conference on Core Skills. School Leaders and teachers took part in workshops discussing how changes in teaching styles, encouraging development of Core Skills, could be introduced and developed in their schools.
School Leaders and teachers discussed the practicalities and challenges of introducing Core Skills in our schools including access to training and it’s dissemination in schools as well as how to monitor and evaluate delivery and impact.
One strategy identified is to display information for staff and pupils, documenting the journey towards embedding the skills into the curriculum and celebrating the achievements of staff and pupils on this journey. Joseph and Henry at Mandaka school are leading the way for Botawa by refurbishing classrooms to provide a more welcoming, creative environment through displays and notice boards.
