Teachers Incentives Programme

Education is the key to independence

 

 

The Teachers Incentives Programme targets an improvement of the schooling-situation in Guabuliga. In a comprehensive study („Improving Education by Motivating Teachers. A case study of Guabuliga's school system“ by Maggie Cassidy-Brinn 2011) the central challenges of the public school of the village are identified and a concrete programme for solutions are proposed. The Teachers Incentive Programme improves the attendance, motivation and performance of the teacher by a reward-based system. Continuous monitoring shows the performance of the teacher and offers individual rewards (monthly) and group rewards (quarterly in the form of an IT-course for the whole teaching staff). The best teacher is rewarded at the end of the year with an education-scholarship which increased the motivation of the teachers and the quality of the classes. That, in turn, is a benefit for the school-children.


The following scheme helps to evaluate which degree of IT-training the teachers will receive. If the overall performance is „Excellent“, the teacher receive the entire IT-course. If the performance is rated „Good“, they receive a one-day course. „Satisfactory“ performance grants half a day and if the rating is „Needs Improvement“, or „Bad“, no IT education is offered. In the school-year 2011/12 teachers received the grade „satisfactory“ in both semesters and earned half a day of the IT-course. In the first semester of 2012/13, teachers improves to a „Good“ rating and received a full day of education.


The background, why BRAVEAURORA doesn't employ teacher is: BRAVEAURORA doesn't want to create dependencies. On the contrary, with the project „Teach the Teacher“, we want to make Guabuliga attractive for teachers. The main goal of BRAVEAURORA is: Help to help yourself, which is why we want to motivate local teachers to come to Guabuliga.
