Education minister warns unlicensed teacher training institutions

By Damali Mukhaye. 

The minister of education and sports Janet KatahaMuseveni has warned all private teacher training  institutions that are operating below the set standards and without license that they face closure.

Speaking during release of 2018 Grade III teachers’ examinations at the Office of the President, Mrs Museveni said she had received complaints about some private colleges training teachers yet they do not meet the required standards while others are operating without licenses.

She said her ministry was going to look out for those institutions and ensure that they do not operate because they are producing half baked teachers.

She also warned that her ministry would not tolerate those colleges that are operating with less than 100 students since majority of those college benefit from tuition paid by students.
