The cost of training a teacher currently stands at GMD 6,000 per year for a teacher training for the Early Childhood Development qualification (ECD) or GMD 10,000 for the Primary Teacher Certificate (PTC). Inaddition, a monthly stipend of GMD 1,000 is paid to all students sponsored by SAGT. In GB pounds this amounts to approximately £1000 for the ECD teacher training and £1200 for a PTC student, over the period of the 3 year training course. These amounts can vary depending on the exchange rate. At the time of writing, (June 2017) the exchange rate is GMD56 to the GB pound.
