Abstract

The study focuses on investigating the Effectiveness of Public-Private Partnership on Empowering Implementers of Competency Based Curriculum in Shinyanga Municipality. The study was guided by four specific objectives: To analyze the policy and objectives in which Public-Private Partnership policy and Competence Based Curriculum were initiated; to identify methods followed by Public-Private Partnership in empowering teachers for implementation of Competence Based Curriculum; Assess resources spent to empower teachers in achieving knowledge about Competence Based Curriculum and to examine the results in terms of success and challenges for empowering teachers in implementation of Competency Based Curriculum. The study applied qualitative and quantitative approaches, incorporated with descriptive research design using the sample of 68 teachers, 5 head teachers, 8 inspectors and 25 parents. Quantitative data was analyzed using descriptive statistics. Qualitative data was analysed using content analysis. The study findings revealed that Public Private Partnership came in as a result of pressure from developed countries in order to fulfil their economic needs. However in the Public Private Partnership, it was possible for all teachers to take part in the in-service training. Also in this arrangement, pools of „teacher and mentor trainers‟ were drawn from Teachers, which ensured efficiency in teacher to teacher support and sustainability of gained teaching and learning skills. The study recommended that at initial level, awareness raising programmes should be conducted to Teachers on the Public Private Partnership, so as to instil transparency and build trust and ownership of the programme.
