Tripoli, 12 May 2013:
Libyan children are still at risk from the dangers posed by mines, unexploded ordinance and weapons. As part . . .[restrict]of an extended programme to spread the message, the Department of Education has boosted the knowledge and skills of specialist trainers.
Fourteen ‘Master Trainers’ from different parts of the country have now been trained, by the Mine Advisory Group (MAG), to deliver Mine Risk Education (MRE) to schools using new teaching techniques and methodologies.
“This is an excellent opportunity for our Master Trainers to get in-depth training on the techniques and methodology of risk education,” MRE coordinator at the Ministry of Education, Najia Sabkha, said.
Following the training, they will now have the skills and confidence to design and develop risk education activities as stand-alone lessons or incorporate these into the school curriculum, she added.
The training was supported by the United Nations children’s fund UNICEF and MAG. It was funded by the European Union. [/restrict]
