Evaluation of four programmes for teacher education in Tanzania during 1997-2002. The programmes are: 1) In-service training of college tutors (Training of tutors programme - TEP), 2) Sponsorship of Teachers/Tutors at the University of Dar es Salaam and the Open University, 3) Distance Teachers Education (DISTED) and 4) In-service Residential courses trough Teachers' Resource Centres (TRC). The focus is on intentions, results, impact and sustainability and the approach is mainly qualitative. Data was collected during fieldtrips to Dar es Salaam, Morogoro and Mtwara in April 2004. The TEP project has been successful in many respects. The sponsorship of tutors is proceeding well while the other programmes have met difficulties.
