In collaboration with the Seychelles Institute of Teacher Education (S.I.T.E), the National Assembly held three interactive talks with teachers spanning over three days this week, aimed at informing, engaging and empowering them to understand the work of the National Assembly. These introductory sessions, which were delivered by Ms. Alexandria Faure, the Public Relations, Communication and Protocol Manager had the objective of supporting participants to discover what Parliament is about and how it is relevant to them.
In addition, the sessions were included in the Face to Face Citizenship Course spearheaded by SITE which is a part of the Blended Learning Mode, which is a new training for in-service teachers whereby they have face to face and tutorial learnings.
The sessions involved large groups of in-service teachers teaching at schools all over Mahe, which included a trip to Praslin for a session with teachers from the schools on both Praslin and La Digue.
These, first of its kind type of outreach programmes places Parliament’s key messages in the appropriate context, maximising Parliament’s educational value to teachers and soon, learners.
