Early Childhood Teacher Development and Management in Southeast Asia

Early Childhood Teacher Development and Management in Southeast Asia

Well-trained teachers are especially important for and central to the quality of ECCE, as they can offer child-centred, stimulating and language-rich learning experiences. UNESCO Bangkok, in partnership with the Southeast Asia Ministries of Education Organization (SEAMEO), launched a new project on pre-primary teacher development in Southeast Asia, in order to contribute to the qualitative improvement of pre-primary education by professionalizing and strengthening the capacity of pre-primary teachers.

As a precursor to this project, UNESCO has been focusing efforts on providing technical and financial support to the development of the first degree-level pre-service teacher education curriculum for pre-school teachers in Lao PDR, while supporting the country to conduct policy research on ECCE practitioners’ status and professional development.
