We’re heading West, North and East: Which ITAU Study Trip(s) do you desire to be part of?

The ICT Teachers Association of Uganda is planning study trips for members to travel together to join colleagues at the Regional Capacity Development workshops (rCDWs) up country. Many times, ICT Teachers from up country have been boarding night buses to come to Kampala to attend past CDWs at Kololo SS. This is an opportunity for members based in Kampala to also travel and visit colleagues upcountry and share with them during the regional capacity development workshops.

A 29-seater coaster / mini bus will transport the members. Therefore, the targeted number of members for each trip is 29 and the seats are being booked on first come first serve basis.

This coaster is ready to transport us during the ITAU Study Trips

The first trip will be from Kampala to Fort Portal Town, the host of the Western rCDW at Kyebambe Girls SS on 6th July, 2019.
