Drs Rebecca Horn and Sean Higgins complete the first round of research skills training

Big smiles for the end of the first course.
The new Rolal Teacher Training and Resource centre is in action.  There are a couple of things to finish off in terms of plastering and fixing doors and windows but the centre is usable as is.  It is a wonderful airy space which will be used by many teachers over the months and years to come. 

It was great to see the new space in use by the Research Skills trainees.  A mixture of staff and students were trained by Rebecca and Sean in some very active research skills for two excitable weeks.  There are two more weeks of putting the new knowledge into practice to produce some research reports about some key educational issues relevant to the Port Loko area and indeed to EducAid's work.  

Rebecca is now writing up the handbook that will make it possible for the staff to pass on the training to other groups for which there is much enthusiasm!
