Zanzibar Improving Students Prospects (ZISP)

The Cadena team recently successfully finalized the World Bank funded assignment “Consulting Services to Assist the Development of In-Service Training Programs for Converting and Upgrading Lower Secondary and Upper Primary Teachers under the Zanzibar Improving Students Prospects (ZISP)”.

During this period they have developed courses for (i) the conversion of about 650 F1/2 Arts teachers to Maths and Science in F1/2, (ii) Teachers Training for Enhanced Student Support (TESS) skill development for up to 1500 teachers of Maths, Science, English, from P5/P6 and F1/F2, and (iii) provided structured inputs for INSET on English Proficiency.
