Teacher Training Colleges – EPFs

ADPP continued to operate 11 Training Colleges for Teachers of the Future (EPFs) in all provinces of the country providing and contributing to increasing the quality of education in Mozambique. The main goal of the EPFs is to train teachers for rural primary schools that are crucial for the country’s development. ADPP believes that well-trained, highly motivated and committed teachers are essential for a better quality of education.


In 2018, a total of 1,394 teachers graduated from EPFs with a total of 1,864 students enrolled in the schools, of which 8 are 1-year and 3 are 3-year schools. As a result, 58,160 primary school children benefited from child-centred teaching methods introduced by students from Teacher Training Colleges during teaching practice.


The EPF Nhamatanda implemented the Inclusive Education Project which is being developed in 47 schools in 4 districts involving students, teachers, educators, managers at different levels and the community which favours the inclusion and rights of people with disabilities in education.
