The following are key aspects of educator training and support:

  • Pre- and in-service programmes for teachers and support for non-formal educators;
  • Deepening educators’ technical knowledge on HIV and AIDS, confidence and experiences in interactive and participatory learning methodologies;
  • Addressing educators’ own vulnerabilities to HIV infection and the impact of HIV and AIDS;
  • Complemented by appropriate learning and teaching materials and aids;
  • Reinforced through supervision, peer coaching and mentoring by experienced teachers;
  • Involving communities to share knowledge, build support and encourage dialogue; and
  • Support for HIV-positive educators through teachers’ unions and positive teacher networks.
