Foreign Language Teacher Training in the Sudan: Past, Present and Strategies for Future Recruitment Policies

Ahmed Gumaa Siddiek


The qualifying of teachers secures the attainment of the national educational objectives, but to achieve these goals, strict criteria about teacher quality must be utilized. However, it is quite clear that whatever measures are to be adopted to deal with these educational issues, it is always the teachers who will have to put these objectvies into reality.This paper is suggesting some ideas to improve the teaching profession. The recent recruitment policy of teachers in the country attracts only the poor achievers, who are unwilling to teach but they aspire to just get a degree. This paper suggests abolishing all colleges of education and encouraging the future teacher to join a one-year training course after s/he has got his/her BA or B.Sc. This policy will attract the willing persons who are serious to take teaching as their profession. Then the candidates can spend this one academic year to be equipped with necessary pedagogical knowledge to qualify to manage his/her classroom efficiently and carry out effective classroom presentation. By this recruitment policy, we can guarantee the sustainability of the process, and that only the willing persons will come to take teaching as their future career.
