Nairobi - Thousands of teachers have been trained in the field of information and communication technology following a partnership by the British Council, Microsoft and the Education Ministry.
Tony Reilly, British Council Country Director for Kenya, disclosed the figures on Wednesday.
"Over the past year, British Council and Microsoft have trained 2 000 teachers and head teachers in innovative pedagogy and ICT skills in partnership with the Kenyan Ministry of Education.
"Kenya continues to lead the way in sub-Saharan Africa in providing access to digital learning opportunities to their students,” he said.
Meanwhile, Kenya is poised to benefit from a new partnership between the British Council and Bharti Airtel.
They have joined forces to maximize the learning benefits of Bharti Airtel’s wider broadband connectivity of 5GB per month in a three-year deal for 127 Digital Hubs located in schools across nine countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.
“This latest partnership initiative with Bharti Airtel demonstrates our commitment to improving access to high-quality teaching and learning in Africa," said Reilly.
