It has been a big year for Cambodia Charitable Trust as the Trust has recently expanded to providing a national teacher development programme, culminating in a trip to Cambodia in October 2019 to conduct workshops and introduce a new education tool that will impact on the quality of teaching in Cambodia.  

During the trip, teachers, mentors, and education officials attended a workshop on teaching techniques which will be used to train the next generation of 1600 teachers who graduate each year.  Each one of those teachers will be responsible for the education of at least 40 children, which means in one year 64,000 children will gain access to a better-quality education, and therefore a more hopeful, empowered future.

The attendees were also introduced to the ‘observation tool’, designed in November 2018 by NZ teachers and representatives of the Teacher Training Department of the Ministry of Education Youth and Sport in Cambodia that will provide customised professional development plans for teachers that are 'observed' in the classroom. A significant step forward in delivering quality education nationally, the tool gives clear guidelines and expectations as to what a quality teacher looks like.

Thank you to all of our supporters, without you, we wouldn’t make the kind of impact that we do on the lives of Cambodian children.
