Schools for the Teachers o the Future

ADPP has been training young people to become primary teachers for more than 20 years. The first “School for the Teachers of the Future”  (known as “EPF” from the Portuguese Escolas de Professores do Futuro) was launched in 1995 in Huambo, since when 14 more schools have been established, in agreement with the Ministry of Education. Three years of studies, courses and experiences prepare EPF students to take on the challenge of educating the next generation, with emphasis on rural areas. The EPF programme is divided into 19 periods, each with its own particular title and highlights.

Subjects to be completed during the year

1st Year: The International Year of the Teacher 
The first year sees the students learning how to learn by travelling for 12 weeks in the period “Bussing Our Continent”, and then learning how to pass on their new knowledge to others.
 
2nd Year: The Year of  Another Kind of School
The 2nd Year sees students gaining classroom experience at neighbouring primary schools, and creating child-friendly, supportive environments through extra-curricular activities. For 8 periods, totaling 32 weeks, the students practice 3 days a week in neighbouring primary schools and spend the rest of the week studying at the School for the Teachers of the Future.
 
3rd Year: The Year of  Another Kind of Teacher 
In the final year, students have to develop and demonstrate their skills during The Year of Another Kind of Teacher, as they live, teach and work in rural communities for the full academic year. In conjunction with working as a primary school teacher, the student teacher follows a study and training program so as to build further capacity as teacher in the class, as teacher outside class, as community leader and as a teacher leading a modern and active life.
