SIAPROM boasts of a team of “multipurpose” trainers who are practically oriented, internationally exposed, dedicated and experienced. Our philosophy of “Learning the hands on way” gives students an opportunity to try out things practically on their own. Practical experience is supplemented with appropriate theory and use is made of a lot of training methodologies ranging from group discussions, demonstrations, tutorials, role plays, hands on training, team work and self-study. All the SIAPROM trainers underwent intensive training in pedagogical skills and curriculum development conducted by the Dairy Training Centre (DTC), The Netherlands. To become a trainer at SIAPROM, a suitable educational background related to veterinary medicine/animal production, practical experience and motivation are necessary. Dr. Wasswa Mathias Luboyera, an Animal Production specialist and trainer with Makerere University with over 20 years of experience, is spearheading the establishment of the SIAPROM.
