The Gambia College, in collaboration with the INSET Unit at the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education (MoBSE), organised a four-day stakeholder forum for project design for school-based teacher development from May 21 – 24, 2018 at its Brikama Campus. The forum was aimed at fostering stakeholder participation in strategy development leading to further collaboration between the Commonwealth of Learning (COL), the College, MoBSE, selected secondary schools and other key institutions.
“The forum was the first in a series of such meetings to be held in various partner countries under COL’s Teacher Futures programme,” said COL Adviser: Teacher Education, Dr Betty Ogange. Participants were drawn from MoBSE and the Ministry of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology, as well as the regional education office. Members of the Education Select Committee of the National Assembly, the Gambia College Council, heads of secondary schools and lecturers from The Gambia College also participated.
