The workshops form part of the on-going training which all EIA TFs receive prior to Cluster Meetings which they facilitate in their respective upazilas. The workshops support the TFs to conduct effective trainings with the 4,500 EIA Teachers who are also going through the 16-month EIA teacher training programme.
