Unesco: Teacher education to benefit 130,000 children

Some 130,000 children, particularly the vulnerable, will benefit from the Strengthening Teacher Education Programme in Cambodia (STEPCam), Unesco said on Tuesday.

The UN agency said the initiative focuses on the role of teachers in building foundations in early learning, with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport providing professional development for more than 4,000 teachers and more than 3,000 education officials.

The three-year programme from 2018 to 2021 was launched by the Ministry of Education and Unesco and has been running for a year, Unesco said.
