CSTL in Zimbabwe has enabled scaling-up and systematising support for children and responding to a broad range of barriers. In 2017, over 90 workshops and training sessions on CSTL priority areas were conducted by MoPSE in collaboration with various partners.

They reached 2 464 officials, 5 507 teachers, 3 425 community members and 2 632 learners. CSTL has focused the school communities on identifying and responding to the needs of vulnerable children.

Parenting skills workshops are aiding parents to better understand care and support for teaching and learning as well as their role as caregivers. MoPSE and partners are implementing community outreach programmes to provide services and support to address the needs of vulnerable learners and community members.

All schools have started implementing a strengthened Life Skills curriculum and all offer HIV&AIDS and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) programmes. Training in the new Life Skills curriculum has been provided for 6 220 teachers.

Through CSTL, training and capacity building is being provided for teachers, parents, caregivers and community members. This helps the school communities to better focus on areas that support teaching and learning.
