This is the report of a workshop organised by the Commonwealth Secretariat on the theme of “Implementing programmes of in-service teacher education.” The main objective was to help those involved in the provision of in-service training to consider alternative modes of training which would enable more teachers to be given in-service training at less cost than through conventional methods and to establish an effective infrastructure of support and supervision for this training.



Address of Response by the Commonwealth Secretariat Representative: Mr. Rex E.o. Akpofure, Director, Education Division

It is my privilege to bring you this morning the warm greetings of our Commonwealth Secretary-General, H.E. Mr. Shridath Ramphal, on this happy occasion of the opening of the Commonwealth Regional Workshop for Africa on In-Service Teacher Education. I do so with a special satisfaction because the occasion fulfils for me, for the first time, the hope which I had nurtured for some two years since taking office, to visit this part of our Commonwealth.
