In Finland, the state controls the sufficient funds to education. Teachers are qualified and are valued for their profession. In those cases, Eritrea could learn from Finland, says Abraham Belay, senior lecturer Eritrean Department of Teacher Education.

Belay is one of the five Eritreans teacher trainers, who will familiarize themselves with Finnish schools and the education system this week.

In Eritrea, there is a shortage of qualified teachers. The most difficult situation is in rural areas, which are home to up to 80 per cent of the Eritrean population.

Trained teachers are difficult to attract to remote areas with no electricity, technology, and not necessarily even decent roads. Although the new schools aim to build just the countryside and the village school teachers organized in-service training, many rural children and young people in danger of remaining without proper training.

Eritreans teacher trainers visit on Thursday and Friday, high-quality education to all seminar held in Jyväskylä, Finland. It discusses how the participants can contribute to the UN General Assembly in 2015 agreed a global development goal of realization of quality education for all.

"I think the quality education means that are given to the younger generation the opportunity to productive work and self-development," says Abraham Belay.

"In order to be achieved in Eritrea, we should focus more on teachers and their skills."

The teacher has to have passion

Teacher training now takes Eritrea 2-4 years. Belayn considers that the length is appropriate, but the quality of teacher education could be developed. Today, Eritrea, for example, the state may determine the person to act as a teacher.

"This does not work. The teacher must have the passion and fire to teach. In addition, he must be familiar with the technology, pedagogy and course materials taught, "Belay lists.

Belay is actually graduated as a teacher in 1982. Then the teacher profession of high social status and palkallakin came along. Over recent decades, the situation has changed: teachers' salaries are low, as in many other developing countries, the profession is not valued and career advancement by providing sufficient.

"Working with one area of ​​one school without having to ever have the opportunity to exchange ideas with others and new ideas for eating motivation of teachers."

"Pupil control every school"

During the visit to Finland, Eritrean teacher training professionals visit schools in Espoo and Vantaa. Belay is interested in exploring in advance on how preschool is organized in Finland, as a "grass-roots system must be in order that the student may develop later."

In addition, the belay is enthusiastic about the student's control. It does not provide any Eritrea.

"I want my return to disseminate information about the student's control everywhere. It should be in every school. "

The greatest importance is the teacher

Finn Church Aid has cooperated with Eritrean teacher training institutions and educational authorities from 2015 onwards. The goal is to strengthen teacher supply and quality. Finn Church Aid training expert Hanna Posti-Ahokas has been working in the country since autumn 2015.

Belayn view, significant cooperation has been offered by just foreign aid, the opportunity to share ideas with experts. Among other things, Teachers Without Borders network of volunteers has been working in Eritrea.

"Teachers Without Borders is a great idea. It provides exactly the kind of expertise we need. I hope that in the future we can get a lot more of the network of volunteers to Eritrea, "says Belay.

He points out that any development investment should include teaching and strengthening skills.

"Just the construction of the school is not enough. The greatest importance is the teachers. Always."
