By way of contrast, the Botswana case study notes considerable in-service support and retraining by means of workshops (Weeks, Botswana case study). 15 Shortage of trained teachers of vocational subjects also characterises the situation in a relatively small number of technical secondary schools in Mozambique. Only in certain donor-supported subject enclaves has there been a systematic effort to train such teachers.
