Mentor Training for English language in schools of Rwanda

One hundred mentors are being trained for six days at FAWE Girls School in Gisozi / Kigali city and this training was officially launched by the Minister of State in charge of Primary and Secondary Education in the Ministry of Education, Dr. Mathias HARABAMUNGU. All these trained mentors will be in charge of the supervision of teachers in primary and secondary who always use English as a medium of instruction in teaching different subjects. Note that since 2008, English language has become a medium of instruction in Rwanda. Now all courses are taught in English except language courses as Kinyarwanda, Swahili and French. In his speech for the occasion, the State Minister in charge of Primary and Secondary Education has shown the importance of this training in teaching English which is already one of the official languages of Rwanda. Other trainings are yet to be held in the nearfuture and will target recruited teachers from Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania who in return will be mentors The trainers are agents of the British Council and the International Education Council.
