200 teacher trainees graduate from the Takeo and Kampot Teacher Training Colleges each year. We provide each new teacher with a Teacher Pack containing paper, pens, scissors, a ruler, a compass and protractor, maps of the world and Cambodia, games, glue and more. These materials would otherwise not be available to the trainees and they value them highly – excitedly looking forward to receiving them throughout the two years of their training.
By providing these Teacher Packs we improve the teaching quality in 200 classrooms each year, effectively reaching 10,000 children.
We provide each teacher in a CCT supported school with the same Teacher Packs we provide to new graduates. This includes paper, pens, scissors, a ruler, a compass and protractor, maps of the World and Cambodia, games, glue and more. These materials are highly valued by our teachers.
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.
