3.2 Prior Teaching Experience

About 80% of the exiting student teachers had never taught before entering training college. Only 15% and 4% had done some teaching at the primary and junior secondary levels respectively and 1% had a year's teaching experience at both levels. This means that most of them do not bring any practical experience relevant to the training, with implications for the content and model of training.
