Commissioned by the Varkey Foundation, this report is one component of a wide-ranging study on the education of secondary school teachers in sub-Saharan Africa. The Market Scan Report provides information for the larger study, which culminates in an Overview Report.The market scan was preceded by a literature review which produced a framework for systematically examining eight key aspects of teacher education as it manifests in both its initial (ITE)and continuing (CPD) modalities: selection into ITE; the institutions which deliver ITE; the nature and content of ITE programmes; induction of newly qualified teachers into the profession; teachers and performance management; continuous professional development; teachers' career paths; and thepromotion of teachers.
