Exploring Strategies for Preparing and Recruiting a Professional Somali Teaching Force

Ali Abdi Mohamed

Abstract: The paper explored the strategies for preparing and recruiting a professional Somali teaching force. The importance of education in improving society is recognized, with educated teachers serving as the foundation of effective learning environments. The paper examines the history and challenges of teacher preparation and recruitment in Somalia, finding a complex landscape impacted by historical legacies, political instability, and conflict. Against this backdrop, the requirement for a skilled teaching force to propel educational development becomes clear. The main challenges facing teacher preparation and recruitment in Somalia include a shortage of qualified teachers, a lack of a well - coordinated policy framework for teachers, low salaries, and inadequate training programs. A number of strategies are recommended to overcome these challenges. These initiatives argue for investments in teacher training programs, increases in teacher pay, and the creation of a comprehensive national teacher policy framework. Collaborations with universities are also recognized, as are improvements to working conditions and the integration of local culture into training. In navigating educational challenges, effective teacher preparation and recruitment emerge as a promising avenue toward a brighter educational future in Somalia.
