Review of Child Friendly Schools in Myanmar
Project Title: Independent Review of QBEP’s Child Friendly Schools / Language Enrichment Programme Location: Myanmar Client: UNICEF Date: October 2017 - April 2018
The Child Friendly School Training and Language Enrichment Programs were initiated by UNICEF, beginning in 2001. The project is made up of a number of in-service teacher training programs focused on strengthening rights-based child-friendly pedagogy and increasing student learning. Since that time, Myanmar’s political and educational context has changed significantly; including the development of a Teacher Competency Framework, the passing of the National Education Law of 2014, and the Ministry of Education’s drafting of the National Education Strategic Plan (NESP).
This Review will evaluate the effectiveness of the Child Friendly School initiatives to date. Additionally, the review will help harmonise the Ministry of Education’s future in-service teacher training content and modalities into a “minimum content/package” of in-service teacher training, which is in line with the Teacher Competency Framework currently under finalization.
