At the beginning of November, HollandDoor visited Ethiopia with Mark Bos from Qpoint as part of the Bright Future in Agriculture project. Our focus this time was on implementing practical education at some of the eight ATVET (agricultural technical vocational education and training) schools. Over the past 2.5 years, we have been training the agricultural teachers of these schools online and offline in practical education and developing skill sheets in fields such as milking, health, and feed and fertility.
Now the time has come for them to incorporate the practical assignments into their lessons, starting with the new students in January this year. At the beginning of March, the Bright Future in Agriculture project will conclude with a final seminar, and we will visit the other schools to coach them during the practical lessons. Practice makes perfect, as they say, so it is very important that the teachers practice a lot with their fellow teachers. These exercises are useful, functional and sometimes quite complicated!
