Education partnerships for development: Sustaining teacher quality in context
This project is investigating teacher education in collaboration with researchers and policymakers in Bhutan, India, Malawi, Mexico, Moldova, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste.
Teacher quality is important in all the participating countries as they make progress towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 intended to ensure inclusive, equitable and good-quality education and lifelong learning for all. The project includes i) an overview of policies and teacher education programmes in the selected countries, and ii) a pilot survey with a convenience sample of school teachers in each country to investigate their preparedness for teaching and their effectiveness as teachers. The project findings will inform teacher education policies and practices in the participating countries.
