Abstract

The introduction of free primary education in Tanzania has led to the need to broaden access to secondary schools. In order to accommodate this need, the government in collaboration with community has built more day community secondary schools. To meet the need for teacher training the Open University of Tanzania in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training have enrolled 1500 licensed teachers into B Sc (Ed), B A (Ed) and BBA/B Com (Ed) programmes. This strategy for training licensed teachers by ODL was expected to enable the Ministry of Education Vocational Training (MoEVT) to upgrade these licensed teachers without the problem of these teachers leaving their schools to go to conventional/residential universities for education and training. // PID 671
