Research title: University-School Partnerships and Quality Initial Teacher Education: Closing the Theory-Practice Gap

This project explores how the Cambridge School-University partnership Model for mentoring teacher trainees can be used as a strategy to meet the mentoring needs of both school-based mentors and teacher trainees in Uganda. This can result in the development of a teacher mentor training programme of school-based mentors to improve on the quality of mentoring offered to teacher trainees during their school practice. Results published in collaboration with Dr Elaine Wilson (University of Cambridge) and also to introduce a mentoring system for teacher training at Makerere University.
