Teacher Training School Luanda has an important impact on the teaching of primary pupils, both in the province of Luanda itself as well in other provinces. 2nd Year students assist and teach at local primary schools, and 3rd Year students spend a full academic year, often in remote rural schools, teaching and acting as community developers. Without their presence, overcrowded classrooms would result in many more children failing to reach their potential. Local and rural communities also benefit from the actions and activities undertaken by Teacher Training School Luanda and its students, whether as micro projects to help improve conditions in villages, or health, cleaning, educational and sporting activities in the around the school itself.
