Message to the National Teachers' Institute (NTI)
It gives me great pleasure to send a message on the occasion of the 2nd National Teachers’ Institute (NTI) Summit and Graduation Ceremony. The NTI is the only dedicated single-mode teacher training institute in the Commonwealth which has trained nearly a million teachers since its inception in 1976. With annual enrolments of over 150,000, the NTI is an example of how distance education can expand access, improve quality and cut the costs of training teachers and we often cite it as a model for countries wishing to increase the number of trained teachers to achieve the EFA goals.
