Support for teachers in challenging situations as a factor of change: reflections from a continuing professional development programme in Guinea-Bissau
AbstractThis article focuses on the experience of a bilateral educational aid project concerning a continuing professional development (CPD) programme for teachers with specific reference to Guinea-Bissau. The author was keen to understand how teachers and school principals perceived the impact of this CPD programme on the quality of teaching and learning. In this qualitative study data from teachers and school principals were collected by means of interviews, focus groups, field notes and documental analysis. The article argues that the programme improved the language skills of the teachers and impacted positively on scientific, pedagogical and didactic content.
