In Uganda, VVOB works with the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) to strengthen the initial education of teachers and instructors in agricultural education. Key aspects of quality pre-service training for future teachers and instructors in agricultural education include: practical teaching experience, technical and entrepreneurial skills, and work-based learning opportunities.

Call for proposals
To ensure the relevance and quality of this endeavour with MoES, we are publishing a call for proposals for an in-depth policy analysis of the relevant policies and institutional arrangements in the area of school-based agricultural education and training in business technical and vocational education and training (BTVET), and O-level.
The focus is on:
- competency-based education and training
- linkages with the world of work in the agriculture sector
- youth employment & entrepreneurship
The analysis also provides insight into the management and the initial and continuous professional development of teachers and instructors in agricultural education.
