Accelerated Education Introductory Teacher Training Pack

The Accelerated Education Introductory Teacher Training pack (AEITTP) is designed specifically for teachers working in accelerated education programme (AEP) classes and teaching learners generally aged 10-18 who are overage for their grade.

Many teacher training institutes or in-service training courses are focused on formal primary school classes and younger children. These courses are not always relevant for teachers of older AEP learners. Older learners bring a richer set of life experiences and skills to their learning compared to younger children. Older learners are also more cognitively mature so are able to learn at a faster pace.

The AEITTP is based on the pedagogy (way we learn) that would best suit older learners’ needs in an accelerated education setting. It is designed to help AEP teachers develop the skills needed to support the learning needs of AEP learners, so they are able to access certified education, further training or livelihood opportunities.

The AEITTP is founded on the AEWG’s Accelerated Education 10 Principles for Effective Practice and AE Teacher Competencies. It is a generic inter-agency course for use by accelerated education programmes. The sessions, vocabulary and tools have been aligned with the Teachers in Crisis Contexts (TiCC) Training Pack for Primary School Teachers to enable consistency of approach where appropriate. However, it has adapted the content for older learners and to reflect AE pedagogy. We recommend this training pack for further processional development on mainstream teacher training in crisis contexts.
