This final research report presents a study of a Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) evaluating the impact of a Certificate Programme on Educational Mentorship and Coaching on the prevalence and quality of induction activities for new teachers in primary education in Rwanda and on non-cognitive outcome measures of new teachers.
We conduct an RCT that estimates the impact of a Certificate Programme on Educational Mentorship and Coaching on the prevalence and quality of induction activities in Rwandan primary schools. To this end, School Based Mentors (SBM) and tutors of the pre-service Teacher Training Centre (TTC) are enrolled in the Certificate programme. Mentors are active in the primary schools of the first intervention group. Tutors from the pre-service TTC additionally monitor the situation at school in the second intervention group. Results indicate a significant increase in teachers’ participation in induction activities in both intervention groups compared to the control group. Further, we estimate positive effects on non-cognitive outcomes of teachers, who participated in the induction activities between March and November 2019. Largest effects are found for emotional exhaustion, teacher efficacy, and work-related needs satisfaction.
