Authors: Salih, Abuelgasim A.

Abstract: The study starts by providing a brief historical background on the development of education in Sudan and examines in particular the development of technical education. It focusses attention upon the provision of training for teachers of technical subjects in technical high secondary schools. In so doing the study highlights some of the current problems in the training of such teachers in Sudan. In looking for solutions to some of these problems the study examines, in Chapter 4, the provision of teacher training for the Further Education sector in England and Wales, together with the reports of various committees on the supply and training of technical teachers. The study concentrates, in Chapter 5, on the study of initial teacher training courses provided for both intending and serving technical teachers by five pioneer centres in England and Wales. These are Bolton Institute of Higher Education, Huddersfield Polytechnic, Garnett College (Technical), Wolverhampton Polytechnic and the course provided jointly by the University College Cardiff and the University of Wales Institute of Science and Technology at the Department of Education of University College Cardiff. The study provides, in Chapters 6 and 7, an analytical view of initial technical teacher 'training' courses at these institutions, and makes a comparative analysis of initial teacher training courses in the Sudan and in England and Wales. Finally, the study suggests ways of fostering recruitment and ensuring well trained and highly motivated teachers, outlines the financial implications and the role of the Ministry of Education, and examines in detail a proposed new structure and curriculum for the initial training of technical teachers in Sudan.
