The Teacher Training College in Cacheu was established in Guinea Bissau as a pilot project approved by the Ministry of Education in 2011, to kick-start the training of primary school teachers. The College trains young people to become primary school teachers, specifically for rural areas where they can be in the forefront of educational development. These teachers bring and use new attitudes and knowledge about teaching and learning while promoting community development in various aspects. The program includes a 10-week study trip by bus where the students gain experiences and knowledge about neighbouring countries. To date, the Teacher Training College in Cacheu has graduated a total of 116 teachers, and currently has 88 students in training.
