Online Teacher Training in Kachin

Despite the current, desperate situation in Myanmar, MEP remains committed to its mission of supporting both teachers and students in communities affected by war, poverty and neglect. In adapting to both the difficult political climate and the pandemic, MEP are working on a new project in Kachin State, with an emphasis on online support.

 

Over the course of four months, the project aims to provide an online teacher training and English language programme for local teachers in Kachin State, Northern Myanmar. Twenty teachers will complete the programme and as a result, up to six-hundred children will receive an improved quality of education in schools affected by conflict and neglect.

TEACHER TRAINING WITH MEP

Find out more about how MEP works. We have developed a unique and innovative model of teacher training. Our mobile units work with local refugee and migrant teachers and children at grassroots level forming meaningful partnerships with local teachers and impacting the learning of thousands of children every year.

LEARN MORE ABOUT TEACHER TRAINING with MEP

Building on many years’ experience of working in difficult conditions MEP has created an innovative and effective system of training  which is sensitive to differing perceptions of education and cultural and social norms.

We hope that what we do has a human face. I am very proud of the work of our teams and am very happy to talk to you about any aspect of our work.
