We work closely with teachers in CCT supported schools to provide ongoing mentoring, training and development. Each month, we run professional development workshops for teachers. In training college, teachers are mostly taught old-fashioned rote styles of teaching. Our development programme teaches them how to make learning more interactive for better student engagement. The Ministry of Education in Cambodia has recognised the effectiveness of our workshops. Each monthly workshop costs $500.
We work closely with the Teacher Training Department of the Ministry of Education Youth and Sport to provide development workshops for the Trainers at 17 Teacher Training Centres. We have a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry and we have a positive working relationship with it. CCT is a key partner in the development of education in Cambodia.
Working with the Teacher Training Department we have created a platform to bring Trainers and in-service teachers together to develop a training and practicum system that brings together the best of theory and practice based on Inquiry Based Learning and Lesson Study. This is transforming teacher education in Cambodia.
We also provide training to the in-service teachers in our supported schools.
CCT is unique in that it works on a number of levels and its programmes reinforce each other. We currently support 19 primary schools, four secondary schools and 17 teacher training colleges Cambodia.
