Provision of Educational Programs for Student-Teachers in Tanzania: Relevant Lessons from Crash and Normal Trained Teachers

Benjamin Mbeba Meli


This paper is based on a study that tried to establish the comparison of established two educational programs for student-teachers in Tanzania. The findings revealed that for the normally trained teachers, their academic programs and content were better designed compared to licensed trained teachers and thus they were more effective in teaching than the licensed trained teachers. It was recommended first and foremost, that The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MoEST) should provide and support general and specific in-service training programs, especially for the crash trained teachers, so that they become more knowledgeable and skilled in the teaching and learning processes.  Furthermore, the MoEST should support the existing teachers’ resource centres with regular and continuous in-service activities at the centres to equip teachers’ knowledge and skills.
