Participants meeting with Guisell Morales, Samidha Garg and Louise Richards

A group of teachers, all members of the National Union of Teachers, came together at the weekend to prepare for their forthcoming visit to Nicaragua. Nicaraguan Ambassador Guisell Morales attended the meeting and gave a presentation on education policy and the general situation in Nicaragua. Samidah Garg, NUT's International Officer and Louise Richards from NSCAG also attended. The teachers, all of whom have expertise in teaching Spanish as a second language, will be spending three weeks in Nicaragua in August to work with Nicaraguan teachers of English as a second language. The purpose of the visit will be to share knowledge, skills and experience around the methodology of teaching second languages. Accommodation will be provided by host families and the visit will provide all participants with an opportunity to learn more about their respective communities, cultures and society. The programme has been set up by Nicaraguan Teachers’ Union ANDEN and the Nicaraguan Ministry of Education MINED, working in partnership with the NSCAG and the NUT, who have sponsored the initiative.
