School is one of the most important institutions of socialization. With the global developments in the educational institution, it is necessary to keep pace with them, improve the performance of teachers, and improve all the inputs of the educational process. In addition, teachers’ reliance on modern means of communication as well as some devices and technologies is an urgent need to improve their teaching performance. Therefore, it is necessary to respond to the changes that they experience, especially those changes that keep pace with the digital revolution, which remains one of the biggest changes in the world. It is an accelerated revolution with its characteristics associated with information which is the key pillar in life. The Education and Training Sector is wide-ranging in terms of employment roles and locations. Jobs in this sector are often demanding but also fulfilling. Employment opportunities in the education sector vary from teaching and training to finance and human resources.

 School must be transformed into a technical environment that aims to accomplish networking between classrooms and facilities, mastering computer technology, and motivating teachers to develop their skills in dealing with technology and information resources. This requires a qualified and trained teacher (Abu Elsamh& Rahal, 2012). Hence, the programs and activities that develop the skills of teachers with their different professional levels and scientific disciplines, increasing the motivation of beneficiaries to upgrade their skills and develop their professional performance are important (Mohammad, 2007).

With the introduction of  modern technologies, the development of the school’s objectives, and the growing demands on them, the need for training, development and continuous improvement increased. These institutions are motivated to take steps towards professional and educational development. Furthermore, training remains as the best way to accomplish the desired change. In addition, having such change requires identifying the teacher’s training needs and developing an appropriate proposal of ongoing training programs.

Identifying the training needs is the scientific input to solve many problems of teacher training by focusing on the preparation and planning of effective training programs derived from their needs.

Therefore, the imbalances between the performance to be achieved, reality, and available training opportunities are analyzed.”(Beaudoin, 2004; Tawfik, 2006).It is important to identify the Training Needs. According to  Elewa (2001) reports that the effectiveness of the training programs depends on identifying the training needs by recognizing the current and required levels of performance, identifying the training policies, and setting the training programs to achieve such policies.

Identifying training needs is an important and decisive process for their effectiveness because:

  • It indicates that training is properly guided in the sub-processes.
  • It helps focus on good performance and accomplish the basic goal of training.
  • It indicates the target group, the type of training required, and the expected results.
  • Its neglecting or inaccuracy wastes effort, time, and money (Al-Ta’ani, 2009).
    Given the importance of identifying the needs that translates the actual need into those areas where they feel a lack of knowledge, it may be useful to involve a number of relevant parties according to the level and location of the target trainees and the overall objective to be achieved.

PEC realized the need   for training in the education sector owing to the current situation of COVID19 that has turned our attention towards E-Learning. The impact of the digital revolution is manifested  in all aspects of life, especially education, where many educational activities have emerged including smart schools, virtual classrooms, virtual education, e-learning, e-administration, and computerized schools. The traditional way in which the student and teacher go to the school on specific times has gone. Consequently, education is available anywhere and anytime (Hussein, 2009).


Future trends indicate that e -learning will impose itself on the educational systems that a school becomes a source, not a place, of learning. Newby et al. (2000) reported that education will involve teachers and students in the educational technology and integrate it to improve teaching and learning. In other words, significant changes in the learning process will occur.

Their predictions came into reality. In the light of the current changes, the educational process is characterized with:


  • Active students learn collaboratively with each other and with more experienced members of thecommunity to search for information and knowledge.
  • Changing the teacher’s role from “teacher” to “supervisor”, helping students use new information tools.
  • Education is sustainable and accessible to all and schools are learning centers for all.

  • Using distance learning techniques that enable learners to learn from teachers at other sites
  • Multiple sources of learning media through information networks.



  • Schools across Africa should have employees with the essential skills for the teacher in digital revolution.The roles imposed on teachers in the digital age require the availability of a number of skills that enable themto meet their requirements. Thus, they should have a set of skills including:
  • Development of life skills management; the learner acquires from the teacher things related to the way ofcommunication, management of dealing, and self-skills because there is a need for independent decisionsunder the name of life skills.
  • Development of thinking skills; education has become a major goal of educational institutions that manycountries have adopted this trend (i.e. using and management of educational technology) in theireducational processes.

Here are the key skills you need to work in Education.  There are a lot of different roles in education, requiring different skills. Here we look at why you should consider a career in teaching and the skills you need to be a teacher, trainer or tutor.



A huge part of teaching is communicating information. It might be verbal, written, or via any other route from practical demonstrations to artistic interpretation – whatever gets your point across.

How to develop it: 

  • Telephone jobs, such as calling alumni for donations or volunteering for a peer support line, develop your verbal communication skills and build your confidence. 
  • Join a debating society, a student council, or even an improve group.
  • Join a student magazine or take responsibility for a society website. 


People learn at all different rates. If you have to explain something seven times in seven different ways before it sticks, that’s just part of the job. And when faced with challenging behaviour, you need to stay calm and patient and not lose your temper.

How to develop it:

  • Patience is one of those inherent character traits -but it is possible to improve yours. Practice thinking before you speak, or make patience your goal for the day.


People learn best when they’re doing something fun and interesting. It’s up to you to be creative in your approach, finding novel and enjoyable ways for your students to learn.

How to develop it:

  • Take up an artistic hobby, like painting, music or drama.
  • Get used to sharing ideas and brainstorming when you have a problem – it’s a skill that will help you connect with your colleagues in future and come up with more creative solutions.
  • Get inspiration. Take any opportunity to volunteer in a classroom and learn from the teacher’s approach.


Your enthusiasm is infectious. If you love your subject and your job, you’ll be able to engage the people you teach.

How to develop it:

  • It’s hard to fake enthusiasm, so aim to teach a subject you love.
  • If you have to do something boring, turn it into something you can be enthusiastic about – make a game of data entry, or write poems to help you memorize facts.
  • In your studies, look for ways you can go above and beyond. Read books that aren’t on the reading list, take on extra projects, and show that you love what you do.


Children can smell fear… no, just kidding. Confidence helps you when you’re standing up and directing a class, whether your students are kids or adults. A lot of education sector jobs involve public speaking, so confidence is a must.

How to develop it:

  • Try new things and set yourself challenges. If you can do things that scare you, you can handle anything.
  • Confident people can be themselves without worrying about pleasing others and fitting in. If you find this hard, experiment with saying the words, ‘No,’ and ‘I disagree’.


There’s no denying that teaching can be tough at times. If you’re dedicated to helping your students succeed, you’ll be able to keep up your energy levels and avoid getting discouraged.

How to develop it:

  • Work on your empathy. When you put yourself in someone else’s shoes you can better understand why they’re struggling.

Conflict resolution

Especially in secondary schools, this can be a big part of the job. If you can defuse tense situations before they explode, you be able to handle it when teenagers upset each other or test your authority. 

How to develop it:

  • You’ll learn behaviour management skills during your teacher training, but there’s no harm in getting a head start. Find a workshop, or read up on tips online and try to apply them in everyday life.
  • Many volunteering positions will offer you conflict resolution training, particularly if you’ll be working with children or teenagers.
  • Be aware of how you act. If you end up in a conflict at work, with your friends or during a project, sit down afterwards and think about how you reacted and what you might do differently next time.


If you’re a schoolteacher, organization skills will help you to fit marking and lesson planning around your school hours, and file and reuse the resources you develop.

How to develop it:

  • Practice organization while you study. If a friend asked to borrow your lecture notes, would you know where to find them straight away? If not, sit down and work out a system.
  • Keep your calendar up-to-date and plan out how you’ll fit your to-do list items into each day. (Don’t have a to-do list? That’s another thing to work on.)


Teachers need to be able to lead a classroom and inspire confidence in their students. They also need to be able to deal with lots of different students with different and sometimes competing needs. If you’re not a natural-born leader, don’t worry, leadership is a skill you can develop.

How to develop it:

  • When it comes to leadership, practice makes perfect. Try putting yourself in situations where you’re required to take on a leadership role. Why not volunteer to head up a group project or become more involved in a society at university?
  • You can also take our Bright Network Academy course on leadership skills to learn more about how you can develop your own leadership qualities.


Working in teaching can present challenges on a daily basis. While these keep the career exciting, a certain amount of adaptability is important. You may have a great lesson plan, only to realize you need to switch gears depending on the level of understanding your students have. 

How to develop it: 

  • Plan, but be open to your plans going awry. While it’s important to be well prepared, be sure to leave room for change and modify your plans accordingly.
  • Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. Making mistakes is a normal part of the learning process. If you do make a mistake, it’s important to be able to adapt and learn from it rather than letting it de-rail your hard work.
