ZOCS has also been conducting sensitization radio programmes in the local language targeting duty bearers, community school management, civic leaders and traditional leaders. The main theme of these programmes is the implementation of the Operational Guidelines for Community Schools and the Education Act 2011. These programmes are supported by Irish Aid and Oxfam. Radio programmes are broadcast in Katete and Petauke to also reach Nyimba and other outlying areas of Eastern Province.
In Katete, Petauke and Nyimba districts of Eastern Province ZOCS is providing training to community school teachers in form of basic teaching methodologies with support from UNICEF. Since the organisation has been in the province over 200 teachers have benefitted from these trainings. Similar trainings are being conducted in other areas of Eastern Province.
