In an effort to increase equity within the profession and to capitalize on its effect on the school environment, the Teachers and Education Leaders Development (TELD) program was developed with GPE funding.
Silenat attended the TELD program over the summer 2018, during which she acquired skills such as how to best negotiate in the workplace or effective ways to provide feedback to colleagues and subordinates.
The training program consisted of a two-month summer course, bridged by one distance program. This program was available to:
- Existing primary teachers, primary school directors, and primary school principals with first degrees, making them eligible as supervisors;
- Existing secondary teachers with a master’s degree making them eligible to become directors;
- Existing secondary directors making them eligible to become supervisors.
GEQIP funds supported tutorials and examination sessions for the school leadership preparatory program conducted as part of the distance program.
