The CBC  Education Department has a  Baptist Teacher Training College (BTTC) in Ndop Baptist Training College,Ndop

The Pedagogic In- Service Training Programme (ISTP) Cameroon is a partnership scheme of the Presbyterian Church In Cameroon (PCC) and the Cameroon Baptist Convention (CBC) in cooperation with Bread for the World Protestant Service (BftW) Germany. The ISTP underscores the fact that the broad aim of education requires the development of competencies, processes and the cultivation of attitudes that have a social ethical base. In this way the learner becomes an active agent in the learning process and takes responsibility to apply the knowledge skills and attitudes acquired in daily life situations. In this context, the teacher becomes a guide, adviser or facilitator. The ISTP focuses on Education for life and education for liberation in an interdisciplinary model of education which enables the Cameroonian child cope with the challenges of a rapidly changing world. It upholds that creating a climate for effective communication and working on the learner self-esteem in the classroom is primordial to effective learning. The program has been working in this direction since 1994 and today it has been extended to the primary school and early childhood education.
    ISTP-specific contextual background

  • Teachers have limited skills in building higher level competences in learners
  • Schools of the PCC and CBC have a profile with high reputation across the nation of Cameroon
  • Schools function in a national environment that is very heterogeneous and currently under precarious circumstances
    Mainstream aspects in ISTP Teacher training model
  • Peace Education and Non- Violent Communication
  • Breaking Gender stereotypes & promoting the girl child
  • Good governance and democratic practice
  • Environmental Education
  • Protestant profile
    Systemic levels in Teacher training
  • Early Childhood Education (Pre-concepts)
  • Primary
  • Secondary
    ( In all cases: learning triangle involved: parents, learners, teachers)
    Achievements
  • Students have more competences in science
  • Teachers who take part in ISTP have implicit ability theories that activate learning
  • ISTP training adequately compensates the absence of pre-service teacher training
  • Pool of teacher trainers (multiplicators) and teachers trained quality teaching dimensions
  • Learner-centred schemes of work produced and used in schools
  • Realization of didactic materials and a didactic material manual for use in secondary schools
  • Realization of all girls project, ground breaking in gender stereotypes
