A new teacher training scholarship programme for young women

South Sudan faces many challenges if it is to increase access to education and improve the learning that takes place in schools and colleges. One of those challenges is to increase the number of trained teachers – and that is one of our priorities for the next five years.

South Sudan has a very small secondary sector, with less than 250 secondary schools and approximately 3,000 teachers. While governments and donors have focused their attention on increasing access to primary schooling in recent years, the secondary sector has  been neglected. In particular, secondary school teachers have had few opportunities for training or continuous professional development, leading to doubts about the quality of secondary education.

A key priority for Windle Trust International in South Sudan in the future will be to explore different ways of improving teaching and learning outcomes in secondary schools as well as to enable more women to enter, and remain in, the profession.
