									DAR ES SALAAM TEACHERS COLLEGE




    Report of the Visitation Team




            August, 2004




                  1
1.0   INTRODUCTION
For the past three decades, the Tanzania Government has been battling
the problem of teacher shortage in the school system. A major turning
point was the 1978 Education Act, which amongst other things called for
both increase in number of teachers and consolidation of their quality.
Following this Act, measures were taken to abolish the three-year teacher
education degree programme at the University of Dar es Salaam. Instead
a three-year plus one-term programme was introduced and later
converted into a 4-year programme.


However, given the increasing social demand for primary and secondary
education the problem of teacher shortage has deepened considerably.
Consequently there have been a number of strategic reforms to enhance
the development of human resources for the education sector. These
reforms include the Education Sector Development Programme (ESDP,
1999), Primary Education Master Plan (PEMP, 2000); Secondary
Education Master Plan (SEMP, 2000); Teacher Education Master Plan
(TEMP, 2000); and Higher and Technical Education Master Plan (HTEMP,
2002).


Recently the Primary Education Development Programme (PEDP, 2001)
and Secondary Education Development Programme (SEDP, 2004) have
led to a significant expansion of primary and secondary education,
implying a further demand for teachers at both levels. It has also been
established that attrition rate of teachers is escalating due to AIDS and
other socio-economic factors. Hence the need to expand teacher
preparation programmes considerably. Besides, both PEDP and SEDP
call for retraining and reorientation of education managers at all levels so
that they can effectively manage the expanding student intake.




                                      2
As part of the strategic efforts to meet the demand for teacher and other
staff in the education sector it was proposed way back in 1990 to create
three constituent colleges of the University of Dar es Salaam namely,
Chang’ombe, Mkwawa and Marangu. The UDSM Council approved this
proposal   in   November    29,   1990     and   recommendations      for   its
implementation were sent to the Government through the Ministry of
Education. After the 1990 General Election the Ministry of Education
was split into two Ministries – MOEC and MSTHE. This separation
created an administrative problem of implementing the proposal given
the fact that UDSM fell under MSTHE while the schools and teachers
colleges came under MOEC.


Currently, the issue of constituent colleges has again been raised in the
SEDP (2004) document as an important avenue for meeting the rising
demand for teachers, which has been created by the expansion primary
education enrolments through PEDP and the creation of new secondary
schools inturn.


2.0   RATIONALE
The Dar es Salaam Teachers College (DTC) also known as Chang’ombe, is
the nearest of the Teacher Training Colleges to UDSM and has the
advantage of allowing sharing of resources with the UDSM academic
faculties of Science, Arts Commerce and the Main Library and academic
staff/faculty in the initial years. Its built infrastructure allows for upward
expansion. It has ample space for sports facilities as well as
demonstration pre- primary, primary and secondary schools. Using ICT it
could easily be linked to the UDSM main campus through the UCC and
hence lectures could be offered by such distance mode from either side.
It is in close proximity to many educational institutions, departments
and schools, which can benefit from both traditional and evening courses
as well as distance education programmes.

                                       3
Currently, DTC, has a capacity of 350 boarding students, but with the
completion of its built infrastructure, as well as the application of
current UDSM policies of deboarding and evening programmes, it can
quadruple its enrollment to over 1600. This number will combine one
year PGDE students, undergraduate and other specialized in-service
programmes, both subject based (e.g. English, Maths, science) or
professional (e.g.   pedagogy, didactics, mentoring and          educational
management).


Dar es Salaam Teachers College has the potential to be used as a
nucleus for innovation in teacher education - affiliation, staff training
and development and a major professional support for other colleges.
DTC has been consistently mentioned in all write-ups of creating
constituent colleges, from the 1990 Task Force Report, the Malima's
Budget Speech of 1988/89, and the Joint Workshop of April 2003.


3.0   VISITATION TO DAR ES SALAAM TEACHERS’ COLLEGE
Following the Dodoma meeting, the VC, UDSM directed that a mini-task
force from the Faculty of Education be formed to immediately respond to
the issues raised in the meeting (see main report). The team worked on
the issues and submitted a report          to the UDSM          management
recommending among other things the need to visit the 3 colleges,
namely, Dar es Salaam, Mtwara and Mkwara, to do a physical survey
and audit to be able to determine the financial implications.

       deemed necessary.


3.2    Modus Operand
The teams conducted detailed discussion with the top management of
the colleges, reviewed available college documents and consulted other
on issues such as availability of a title deed, boundaries, sanitation
system etc. The team however observed that some aspects of the terms of
reference could be handled when preparing a master plan and strategic
plan of the College.


4.0    MAJOR FINDINGS
4.1    Geography
The College is locate in Temeke District Dar es Salaam region, adjacent
to    the   National   Stadium,   J.K.T   Mgulani   and   Temeke   District
Headquarters.


It is about 9 kilometres from the town center and 15 kilometres from the
University via the Mandela road. Thus communication with the
university is easy and quick.


The College consists of 33 acres, some of which has not been built on.
The Demonstration Primary School occupies 1/5 of the total college land.
In addition, between the college boundary and the National Stadium

                                      7
there is an open space which has not been built on and has been set
aside as a car park for the stadium. However, the Ministry of Labour
Culture and Social Welfare had plans of building a new stadium between
the National Stadium and Chang’ombe TTC (Daily News, March
29,1990).


Attempts to fence off the compound or control rights of way have begun
to maximize security and control theft and vandalism especially when
there are big football matches at the stadium. Both front and rear gates
to the College have been installed and these have controlled the myriad
of paths that used to be seen on the college campus.


4.2   Brief History
Dar es Salaam Teachers College was established in 1959 by Sir Richard
Turnbull, the British Governor in Tanganyika. Its first activities were
undertaken in the buildings which today are used by the Chang’ombe
Practicing Primary School. Initially the college aimed at training Asian
teacher’s for Asian primary schools in the then Tanganyika. Students
who completed the course successfully were awarded the Cambridge
School Certificate.


In 1965 the college was moved to its present premise where the
foundation stone was laid by his Excellency, the late Mwalimu Julius
Kambarage Nyerere, the first President of the United Republic of
Tanzania. The first African Principal, was appointed in 1967. Since then
the college started a comprehensive training programme of primary
school teachers for the whole nation without discrimination.


Also in 1966 the college started offering a Diploma programme in
Education to students who had successfully completed form six. After
completion of the course and passing their necessary examinations they

                                    8
were employed to teach in secondary schools by the Ministry of
Education. In the mid sixties the college was given a task of developing
curricula for Kiswahili and Geography in collaboration with the then
Institute of Education of the University of Dar es Salaam.


In its history, the college had offered different programmes such as
      Health Education Courses which was offered from 1962 – 1966.
       The objectives of these courses were to raise Community Health
       Standards through schools. It was offered to Student Teachers and
       School Inspectors.


      A two years upgrading Diploma course which started in 1967 –
       1994. The main aim was to raise the academic level of primary
       school teachers. One year was spent on A level studies and the
       second for Diploma course.


      Music, Fine Arts, Theatre Arts and Sport courses at Certificate
       level began in 1970 and ended in the year 90s. These courses were
       latter shifted to Butimba Teachers’ College in Mwanza region.


      Home Economics course (female students only) – This course has
       also been transferred to Mandaka Teachers’ College in Moshi
       Kilimanjaro.
      Grade III A Certificate course which is no longer offered by the
       College.


4.3    Administration
As in other Teachers’ Colleges, the College is headed by a Principal who
is answerable to the Director of Teachers’ Education at the Ministry of
Education and Culture. The College has a College Board appointed by



                                     9
the Regional Commissioner and consists of representatives from the
Ministry and the College staff. The Principal is the Secretary of the
Board.


The Principal and Vice-Principal, are assisted by the Dean of students,
Registrar of students, Heads of Departments and supporting staff.
The college also hosts secondary school, a primary school and a pre-
primary as demonstration facilities whose administration is answerable
to the Principal of the College. Figure 1 shows the College Organizational
Structure:

4.4   Programmes at Present
Currently the College caters predominantly for pre-service students with
the exception of a few Inservice teachers who have same qualification
with the pre-service. The programmes are:
     Diploma course in Education specializing in Science subjects
      (Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics), Social Science
      subjects (Geography, History, Language) and Business and
      Commercial subjects. Also, the college offers computer applications
      courses.


     A one year INSET programme – This programme deals with
      secondary school teachers who graduated their first degrees in
      general degrees without an education component (e.g. B.A and
      M.A.) Upon graduation, the graduates are awarded a Postgraduate
      Certificate to teach in secondary schools.


     Teacher Resource Centre (TRC). The center was established as part
      of   human    capacity   building   programme   in   Science   and
      Mathematics for Primary and Secondary School Teachers. This was
      established through TEAMS project of the Faculty of Education,
      UDSM.


4.5   Student intake and enrolment
(a) Students for the diploma courses are selected by the Ministry of
Education and Culture on the basis of their ACSEE results. They require
two principal passes in two teaching subjects which are taught in
secondary schools. The enrolment for the two years of 2003/04 and
2004/05 is shown below:

4.6   Staffing and Qualifications
There are presently 37 members of teaching staff, consisting of 11 M.A,
23 BA/B.Sc., 1 Diploma, 1 Grade A Certificate and 1 with a special
certificate. This is, however, a constantly changing situation. Still is
obvious that any decision to transform Chang’ombe into a Constituent
college would have immediate implications in terms of commitment to
recruitment and training of academic staff. The tables 2 and 3 below
show the staffing situation for both academic and non-academic cadres,
respectively.

The administrative staff number is 26 but the same commitment is
required for them. For example, the accounts are handled by two
accounts assistants. The Library has one Librarian Gr.III and the
remainder are Form IV (1) and Std.VII(3). Appointment and training of
more qualified administrative and support staff will be required.

4.7      Equipment and Vehicles
Owing to a combination of vandalism, theft and lack of rehabilitation, the
condition of the physical plant is critical. Almost all the movable
equipment such as louvers, tables, chairs and even washbasins and
showers     have    been   stolen   with    the   exception   of   those   in   the
Administration block and the Principal’s house. Where sheet glass
windows have been installed, they were largely intact. Recently the
College has acquired 450 new lecture chairs. The electrical fittings has
also been widely vandalized, especially in the students’ dormitories,
teachers’ quarters, cafeteria and some classrooms.


                                           15
What had not been stolen was largely broken, obsolete or non-existent.
(a)   In the dormitories, wardrobes, toilets, showers, washbasins and
      hotwater tanks need extensive replacement.


(b)   In the kitchen, all seven cookers, the hot water tank and the cold
      room were all out of order. At present cooking was done in an
      improvised external structure outside the cafeteria building using
      firewood and DANIDA had constructed a modern firewood kitchen
      using stoves that required only one third of the usual amount of
      firewood. This would undoubtedly help to alleviate the problem but
      one wonders whether it was an adequate long term solution
      especially considering the location of the College.


      In the dining hall, there were no bulbs, louvers, or chairs. There
      were very few tables. The glass sheet folding doors were intact but
      the folding mechanism was out of order.


(c)   There are no fire extinguishers in the laboratories. However, the
      laboratories have taps, sinks and electricity points. DANIDA was
      also rehabilitating the electricity system by rewiring most of the
      buildings and repairing faulty fittings. However DANIDA had opted
      to use the external wiring system which tended to be a short-lived
      solution.


(d)   The library has reading tables and chairs for 168 students and 26
      bookshelves. However, the microfilm facilities were out of order.


(e)   The maintenance section consisted of 4 carpentry benches. The
      planer and grinding machine were out of order.




                                     16
(f)   The dispensary has a stethoscope, a fridge and a bed and a screen.
      The equipment are largely inadequate.


Three of the four telephone lines and many of the 31 extensions were out
of order.


4.8   Physical Facilities
The College was established in 1959 and the buildings were completed in
1965. Most of the buildings had flat roofs which leaked severely owing to
lack of rehabilitation. This had been largely rectified by the DANIDA
Maintenance    team.   The    Administration   building,   teaching   block,
cafeteria, laboratories, library and dormitories had already been reroofed
with corrugated sheeting and plans were underway to reroof the
Principal’s house and teachers’ flats.


The college has a regular supply of water but still seriously suffers from
problems as a result of the former water shortage, toilets and showers
were no longer in use, some of the pipes were blocked and stop cocks
destroyed. The students’ dormitories depended on pit latrines dug
outside. The same applied to many of the teachers’ houses.


The fixtures, including windows and built-in cupboards were all in need
of extensive rehabilitation since they had either been eaten by termites or
vandalized. However, most of the door have been recently replaced.
Office space. The Administration block consisted of six potential offices,
including the office of the Principal, his/her secretary, the Vice Principal,
the Bursar, a general office (39’9” x 17’10”) and what is presently a staff
room (30’4” x 17’10”) with an adjoining kitchen (17’10” x 5’) which could
also be transformed into office space.




                                         17
There would be, therefore, a shortage of offices space in the event of
Chang’ombe becoming a constituent college. The present block would
probably be insufficient for even the General Administration, let alone
Faculty offices.


The same applies to office for the teachers. There were nine teachers’
offices interspersed with the classrooms. There was also one office next
to the Domestic Science Classrooms, and one in the art room. In the
library block two other offices existed which would probably be taken
over for library use. In addition the small existing shop could be
reconverted into an office and be used along with the next door office at
present used for administration purposes.


SEWAUDA also has one office in the teaching block, similar in size to the
teachers’ offices.


4.8.1 Classrooms/seminar rooms and laboratories. There are 9
classrooms with a capacity of 30 and 1 with a capacity of 70. In addition
there was an audio visual room (capacity 60) art room (capacity 30+)
lecture room, three domestic science classrooms with equipments and a
textile and clothing laboratory which could all be transformed into
classrooms, three seminar rooms, and a Mapinduzi Room which portrays
the history of TANU and is also used as meeting room.


There were also two rooms being used as a staff canteen which were
originally classrooms.


There were also three laboratories (one each for Chemistry, Physics and
Biology) each with a capacity of 24 students. There is only one
preparatory room and office in each laboratory.



                                    18
In addition, adjacent to the library there was a resource center, a
classroom and a visual aid room which could become either additional
classroom space or be appropriated by the library.


4.8.2 Library. The Library building is a one storey building. The ground
floor consists of a counter, special reserve section (one shelf) reading are
seating capacity of 48, bookshelves, a librarian’s office, a book store
(which houses condemned books) and a processing room.


The first storey had bookshelves and a reading capacity of 120 students
although this could be increased.


The first storey also contains teachers’ offices, a classroom, a visual aid
room and a resource centre. These could all be taken over by the library
for office/storage space thereby enabling some of the ground floor offices
to the transformed into additional reading space/departments such as
periodicals, East Africana and special reserve.


Apart from some donations from the British council, and some American
and Korean sources, many of the books are outdated and sub-standard.
There is need to update and expand all sections. There were sufficient
toilet facilities.


4.8.3 Cafeteria block. This block consists of two main parts, the
dining/assembly hall and the kitchen area. The dining hall consists of a
raised stage and a hall with a seating capacity of 400.


In the long run the feasibility of such a dual purpose hall is open to
question. Chang’ombe needs an auditorium which is separate from the
dining facilities.



                                      19
The kitchen area had a serving counter, a catering office, a washing area,
a mains control room, five storage rooms, a cold room (out of order) and
toilet facilities. As stated earlier it has been converted into a firewood
kitchen. Its cost efficiency vis a vis use of other sources of energy ought
to be determined.


4.8.4 Student accommodation:
4.8.4.1 The Female Hostels. There are two one storey female hostels
divided into two wings. Each floor of each wing had its own
toilet/washing facilities. The size of the wings range from 6 to 11 rooms.


Each room house two students. In each room there is a one double
decker bed, one fixed reading table, one small moveable bookshelf, one
built-in double wardrobe, two fixed reading lamps, one ceiling lamp and
no sockets.


There is also a common room for each hostel and a common washing
and drying area. In the second hostel there is also one self-contained
teachers’ quarter converted out of the student rooms which could be
used by the Matron.


The rooms are adequate and suitable for a University but a lot of
rehabilitation is necessary in the toilet/washing facilities and in
replacing louvers and mosquito gauze. The capacity for female students
would thus be 146.


4.8.4.2 The Male Hostels. There were also two one-storey hostels
divided into two wings which toilet/washing facilities for each wing.


In each wing, there are four large rooms which contain four double
decker beds (8 students) and one small room with two double decker

                                     20
beds (4 students). This gives a total capacity of 288 students. However,
the rooms were originally designed for 4 students (large room) and 2
students (small room) and were overcrowded. They had insufficient
reading space. Thus a more realistic accommodation figure would be 144
with the additional possibility of partitioning the large rooms so that
there would be two students to each room.


There was also a common room in each building. However, one had been
converted into a dormitory and the other into a mosque.


Extensive rehabilitation is needed for these hostels as the students
rooms, wardrobes (which are situated in the passage outside) and
washing/toilet facilities were all in a very poor state.


Students were using pit latrines outside, but the rectification of the water
supply should make this unnecessary.


4.8.5 Maintenance section. The college has one plumber, no physical
facilities or equipment exist except for a carpentry workshop which
consists of 4 benches and sufficient handtools (planes, saws, hammers).
Thus only very minor repairs were being carried out at present. It was
obvious that the maintenance section would need to be greatly expanded
to be able to satisfy the college needs, and also a garage established for
minor repairs/servicing of college vehicles.


4.8.6 Dispensary. There was no dispensary. A converted office was being
used. Only one nurse who wears a uniform and an RMA are employed. It
had no equipment, no boiling facilities, no vehicle, no telephone. Thus it
is simply a First Aid room. Patients are referred to Temeke District
Hospital which is about 3 kilometres away for further treatment.



                                       21
4.8.7 Sports and recreation. There was one pitch for each of the
following: football, Volleyball, Basketball, Handball, Netball, Hockey and
Badminton. Most of the goal posts for these sports fields had been stolen.
There were also climbing frames, which were out of order and close to
collapse. There was a sports office (in one of the teachers’ offices).


For other recreation, the dining hall has facilities for drama (a stage with
a corridor behind it and separate entrance door) films, and holding
dances.


The curtains on stage do not work. There is no bar though soft drinks
are sold at the college shop.


4.8.8 Demonstration primary school. This constituted of the original
college buildings. The roof was leaking badly, the windows had no glass
and the doors were out of order. It occupies 6 acres of the college land.


4.8.9 Demonstration Secondary School
The College also has a demonstration Secondary School.
The school has forty five (45) teachers (26 female and 19 male) and five
(5) non teaching staff (all female) see tables 4 and 5). The school is under
the college administration.

4.8.10 Staff Accommodation. The College had accommodation for
eighteen teachers only, together with one house for the headteacher of
the primary school.
The Principal’s house contained three bedrooms, a large sitting/dining
room, a kitchen and storage room, two bathrooms and a self contained
servant’s quarter. The house was generally in good condition except for a
leaking roof, which DANIDA has repaired. There was a one storey block
of 7 flats for teachers with three 2-bedroom, two 3-bedroom and two one
bedroom flats.


The block leaked and needed reproofing and many doors and louvers
need replacing. There were four semi-detached bungalows housing 8
families; 6-3 bedroom and two – 2 bedroom. There were still in good
condition. There were two 1 bedroom houses. One of these was in the
female hostel and the other was a bungalow.


There was obviously a need to expand the existing accommodation.


4.8.11 Other facilities. There was a small college shop, a nursery
school with plans to build a permanent structure.


Postal facilities were in Temeke (3 kilometres away) and a branch of NBC
has also recently been opened in Temeke.
