Graduates from KIE will this year begin undergoing a one year teaching practice
The period for teaching practice at the Kigali Institute of Education (KIE) has been extended to span a full year as opposed to the three months it has been taking.
The development was announced at a recent meeting where secondary school heads met with Minister of Education Dr. Vincent Biruta.
Graduating teachers at KIE are expected to undergo teaching practice for a year; a measure that the institute’s management says will ensure quality.
“We want to ensure quality through this programme because we believe that after one year of constant supervision and direction to the students, we will have good quality teachers the country needs to take the education sector of the country to the level that is desired,” said KIE Vice Rector for Academics Prof. Wenceslas Nzabilirwa.
KIE is currently undergoing a major overhaul to streamline the teaching practice in the country as the custodian of education. One of the major undertakings the institute has been given is to ensure accreditation process of the other school teaching colleges. The colleges will now be issuing exams prepared and controlled by KIE.
Speaking to the head teachers, Minister Biruta urged school heads to help the practicing teachers during their long internship.
“Your cooperation and help will be a big boost to both the education system and to your schools in particular, so you should help them carry put their school practice successfully,” said Biruta.
Speaking to Ubumenyi.com, Claver Uwiringiye, a final year student at KIE who is waiting to begin his internship said that the period is a long period, but hastened to say that he would undergo it if it is what it takes to be a good teacher.
“It is quite inconveniencing because it means that I will have to wait some more months before graduation, but I am ready to take on my work,” he said.
