As in any education system, teachers play a central role, being at the frontline in the transmission of knowledge. This explains why so much emphasis is given to academic and professional qualifications. Teachers should receive adequate academic and professional qualifications to ensure s/he adequately masters subjects’ syllabus and prepared to handle a class and students. Yet, there are no blueprints of what constitute good academic and professional qualifications; and much debate still arises around those questions. Central to this issue is the ability of the training apparatus to effectively equip future teachers and those currently in class with the required professional skills and competencies to allow them to teach effectively.
