GTU MEETS MENTORS IN THE ‘FIT’ PROJECT

MENTORS AND PROJECT OFFICIALS

The Gambia Teachers’ Union today, 17th August 2021 convened a session for 12 mentors under its ‘Mobile Technology: Mentoring and Professional Learning Communities for Women Teachers in The Gambia’. The convergence held at Mansakonko, LRR, was meant to abreast the participants on key components of the project as well as on issues surrounding Gender-Based Violence.

The GTU with support from the Canadian Teachers’ Federation is implementing a one-year project dubbed ‘FIT Project’, meant to support 48 young women teachers from RED 3 to 6 under 5 years of teaching experience matched with 12 Mentors working in remote areas through Mentoring and Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). The rationale is that women teachers leave the profession because of isolation and disconnection.

Project officials believe that that the relationship between the mentees and mentors & Professional Learning Communities maintained through mobile phones, will help Mentees feel better connected, supported, more confident, competent with the potential of high retention in the teaching profession.

During the implementation phase, series of activities will be conducted. This is geared towards achieving the project’s target.

At the end of the session, Fatou Ceesay a participant, thanked project officials for the opportunity accorded them. She also extended gratitude to the CTF and the Canadian government for funding the project. She challenged her colleagues to be proactive and committed to meeting the project’s goals.

Essa Sowe Project Officer and Saffie Nyassi Chairperson GTU Ladies’ Society led the presentations.
