Proficiency in IT is essential to improving employment opportunities, particularly in rural areas like Tyume Valley. TVS funds 2 IT trainers who provide weekly IT classes to children from the Valley. Thanks to our fundraising activities and kind donors, we have over 20 functioning laptops. Rather than transporting laptops to schools around the Valley (with all the attendant security risks), our computers are kept in a secure, alarmed location with a reliable electricity supply, at our Resource Centre at Dyamala Primary School.
During 2018 we are piloting the new TechLearn programme that integrates IT and English language teaching, with up to 190 primary school children. For details of TechLearn, click here.
We continue to provide more conventional IT teaching to learners from secondary schools in Tyume Valley. We are also supporting one of our IT trainers to obtain a full teaching qualification, which will improve her own employment opportunities.
