TRAINING and retraining of teachers are among the priorities of the Ministry of Education.

Divisional education officer northern Satya Nand Shandil made the comment at a leadership workshop for teachers in Labasa College yesterday.

"The Ministry of Education is not leaving any stone unturned and it is putting a lot of effort in training and retraining teachers," he said.

"We understand that leadership can take different forms in different contexts. We also understand some of the mechanisms through which educational leadership has its effects," Mr Shandil said.

He urged participants to broaden their horizons and increase their networks to allow better communication with students, parents and stakeholders.

"These teachers have been selected to be part of this workshop. They are the ones who have acted on senior posts such as principals, HODs and headteachers and also they have excelled through experience and academic purposes."
