Abstract:

This research focuses on the teacher training in Malawi. Malawi adopted the system of free primary education in 1994. This resulted that the number of enrollment of primary school pupils has increased from 1.8million in 1993 to 2.9million in 1994.However the quality of education has been worse. The one of biggest causes was lack of teachers to take care those lots of pupils. Therefore Malawi government adopted new teacher training program, called the Malawi Integrated In-service Teacher Education Program (MIITEP) in order to provide enough number of new teachers. It was mixed-mode system where periods of college-based training (pre-service training teacher) alternated with distance and local level support for training with school bases (in-service training teacher). Then pre-career, full-time teacher education was replaced by MIITEP. The program was introduced in 1997 and has trained over 18,000 teachers.
Some pre-research paper mentioned this program was succeeded especially from view of cost-effective. Yet, it was not succeeded in long term view. This research paper makes this point clear why MIITEP was not cost effective. Then it tries to contribute to formulate the research framework to identify the cost effectiveness of in-service training teacher and pre-service training teacher.
