Description and Impact

The purpose of this role is to support teacher education reforms in Myanmar. The volunteer will be based at Education Colleges (ECs) and will strengthen Continuing Professional Development (CPD) pathways and programmes for EC principals, Teacher Educators (TEs) and teachers. The CPD will build the capacity of TEs to deliver the new 4-year pre-service degree course. Volunteers will support TEs and teachers to adopt more inclusive teaching practices, paying special attention to the access, participation and achievement of children with disabilities.
This position will be based at an Education College in Myanmar.


Success for this project will be measured by the following KPIs:

  • Continuing Professional Development Working Group (CPDWG): Volunteers will facilitate the establishment of CPD working groups (CPDWG) in ECs and support the development of an institutional CPD programme at ECs, which will seek to strengthen links to practice schools.
  • Development of CPD resources: Working with other stakeholders and volunteers, support the development of CPD modules on inclusion (with special attention to disability) and ensure inclusion is embedded in all aspects of CPD including English.
  • Capacity building of Inclusion Champions: Train CPDWG members on inclusion and support CPDWG members to train other Teacher Educators on inclusion. The volunteer will also identify and mentor ‘Inclusion Champions’ whose role will be to actively promote inclusion in their ECs and clusters. The ‘Inclusion Champions’ will act as an information resource on inclusion, lead the CPD of other TEs and teachers and participate in CPDWG meetings.
  • Training and mentoring of TEs and Principals
  • Action research
  • Build partnerships and strengthening practicum
