Description: 
The Theatre for a Change Teacher Training HIV Needs Assessment Survey was carried out in June, 2008, in Malawi's nine Teacher Training Colleges (TTCs) and the teacher training department of Mzuzu University. A total of 754 pre-service teachers were sampled for the survey, with data triangulated through three research tools: questionnaires, semi-structured interviews (SSIs) and activity-based workshops. These different tools allowed for knowledge, attitudes and behaviour to be sampled, for contradictions to be investigated, and for the data to be as representative as possible of the reality for pre-service teachers in the TTCs. The survey focused on key areas relating to HIV risk and prevention, both among the pre-service teachers coming to the end of their training in the TTCs and their future pupils. 129 teaching and management staff were surveyed in a separate questionnaire, looking at the standards of teaching and resources in the delivery of gender-based learning and its impact on HIV risk.
