Donors of the STEM project visit Kyaukphyu Education College and further discuss teacher education reform

Under the Strengthening Pre-service Teacher Education in Myanmar (STEM) project, a joint visit to Kyaukphyu Education College was held on 13 June 2018. Accompanied by the Deputy Director-General of the Department of Higher Education, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Embassy of Finland in Yangon, UK Department for International Development (DFID) and UNESCO visited Kyaukphyu Education College and its practicing school to conduct an orientation on teacher education reform and the project and to understand issues relating to pre-service teacher education in Kyaukphyu. On 14 June 2018, the group also visited Kyaukphyu Township Education Office, a Basic Education primary school and a Basic Education middle school to gain better understanding of the various teacher issues such as teacher deployment and transfer arrangements, which are useful to feed into further dialogues for teacher policy development that the project is supporting.
