20 Years of ADPP Teacher Training in Mozambique
The first ADPP Teacher Training College in Mozambique was inaugurated in 1993 in Machava, Maputo Province. Since then, altogether 11 Colleges have been established covering all provinces of the country.
With 20 years since the beginning of the ADPP teacher training, the year 2013 marked a special anniversary for all of the Colleges across the country. The 20-year jubilee was celebrated between 12-18 October through a week full of events ranging from workshops on pedagogy and exhibitions and presentations depicting the studies at the Colleges to various sports and cultural events. All events were carried out together with the neighboring communities.
Over the course of the week, altogether 230 events took place in all of the 11 Colleges of the country. In addition to the nearly 2.000 students and over 200 teachers, the events were successful in mobilizing the local communities and authorities from Maputo to Cabo Delgado and in having them participate actively in the celebrations along the week.
