Special Needs Teachers Training & After School Clubs in Ndola

Special Needs Teachers Training & After School Clubs in Ndola

In March 2019, thanks to the generous support of the British and Foreign School Society, we started a new project in the only 3 deaf units in mainstream primary schools in Ndola, Zambia. We trained 30 special needs teachers that work within these units  at Kanshenshi, Kamba and Chilengwa Primary schools to advance their Zambian Sign Language skills to improve the quality of education delivered to their deaf students.

 

As part of our new project in Ndola, Zambia, we also set up weekly after school clubs within the 3 deaf units in primary schools, led by the trained teachers and a sign language interpreter, to help teach basic sign language for mainstream students and help to improve inclusion and interaction between deaf students and mainstream students.
