JICA Training Induction Program - 2011 Separate Regional Training “African Regional Teacher’s Training (Basic Education Field) (French)”
2011 Group Training “African Regional Teacher’s Training (Basic Education Field) (A) (French)” of the JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) Training Induction Program was conducted from November 16 to December 16, 2011.
As this program was funded by international contributions, policies to improve teacher’s education for French-speaking Africa were examined. Fifteen administrative teachers and regional teaching administrators from French-speaking Africa (Benin, Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal, Cameroon, Rwanda,
Burundi, Comoros, Djibouti, and Niger) were invited to Japan to help improve the quality of elementary school education.
During the training, there were tours of elementary schools, school boards, and educational centers,
in addition to lectures and classroom visits, to help the instructors understand the current situation with Japan’s elementary school education.
Especially at the Hiroshima Peach Memorial Museum, the attendees attended lectures by those who experienced the bombing and had an opportunity to deeply consider peace education.
The trainees presented action plans for their individual countries based on the results of this training.
At the closing ceremonies, the representatives of the trainees spoke of their impressions of the training and their future enthusiasm and expressed their gratitude toward this university and JICA.
