Angola committed to transform education system

Angolan minister of Education Luísa Grilo underlined Monday the commitment of the sector to transforming the education system, with professionals capable of training creative men, inventors and discoverers.

Luisa Grilo was speaking at the opening of the level 1 training for the Girl Empowerment and Learning for All Project (PAT2).

She acknowledged the increasing need to train young people with critical thinking, responsible, individually and collectively.

The minister also said that training will contribute significantly to improving the quality of the education and teaching process in order to make it increasingly competitive, resilient and able to respond to development needs in a constantly changing world.

The minister said the training of teachers and other members of the school community is instrumental in meeting the new demands of teaching.

In her speech, the minister focused the role of professionals in the observation and monitoring the social behaviour of young people.

Cabinet official said that the training will provide very important topics to achieve this goal, such as the Awareness Strategy against Violence, for Sexual Education, reproductive health, as well as resources and didactic tools for use in the classroom to improve the quality of student learning.

Over 100 teachers from Magisterial schools, with emphasis on those from primary education courses all over the country, participated in this 1st stage of training of level 1 trainers.

The training reflects on the National Development Plan for the period 2023-2027, which will be a planning instrument for the next five years, ahead of the long-term strategy 2050.
