Speaking to Sudan Tribune after the closing ceremony on Tuesday, the commissioner of Twic East, Dau Akoi said 98 teachers had completed the course.

“This in-service training is very important for every worker, not only teachers. During these three weeks, the teachers were taught how to make their schemes, lesson plans and other related things to assist them in teaching”, explained Akoi.

The training was supported logistically by the Education Development Centre.

According to Dau, lack of good teaching standards was having an effect on the performance of pupils so the county authority was working with the education ministry is making sure that teachers are given the necessary skills and knowledge.

However, he described the selection of teachers to attend the training as random, admitting that there were no clear guiding principles for selecting the trainees.

In some schools across Jonglei, primary school leavers are immediately becoming primary schools teachers, while in some areas those with higher qualifications refused to go to teach, due to the low salary, harsh conditions and insecurity.

In Nyirol, the highest level of education available is primary five, where people finished and go back to teach others according to the recent reports from the county commissioner, Wany Juet Jock, who has promised to improve education in his county.

South Sudan has some of the worst levels of literacy in the world as a result of decades of civil war and neglect.
