ICDL Uganda welcomed the long-awaited Train-the-Trainer training at Makerere University in the heart of Kampala City.
The training program kicked off very well with an attendance of twenty six trainers drawn from fourteen ICDL ATCs in Uganda.
The trainers came from newly accredited ATCs majority of them International schools, business schools and Universities. Makerere University – the host had six of their trainers in attendance. The training that lasted 3 days has been described by the trainers as ‘the most eye-opening event’ of their lives.
“I can now confidently say I am no longer a ‘teacher’ of ICT but a ‘trainer’ because I have gained experience and expertise in delivering the ICDL content better and easily,” confessed Harrison, a trainer from Chum International School.
The training that ended with group presentations, brought more excitement to the trainers when they were tasked to take roles as trainers and some as students for lower primary students. The aim is to make sure the trainers can keep training simple and easy to learners. During this session most of them put to practice what they had learnt throughout the training.
Delivering the closing remarks, the ICDL Country Manager in Uganda, Michael Niyitegeka thanked all the trainers who participated in the training and Makerere University management that offered the venue at no cost. He also thanked Peter Maina from ICDL Africa Head office for always offering support selflessly to ensure the content delivery and quality of standards are maintained.
