Detailed description of project Back
The Capacity Development Partnership Fund (CDPF) is a long-running partnership between the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) in Cambodia, the European Union, the Swedish Embassy, USAID, Global Partnership for Education and UNICEF. The purpose of the CDPF, currently in its third phase, is to support the realisation of the two policy priorities identified in Cambodia’s MoEYS’ Education Strategic Plan (ESP) 2019-2023: (i) to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all; and (ii) to ensure effective leadership and management of education staff at all levels. UNICEF is the Fund Manager for CDPF Phase III.

The implementation of the teacher development workplan is supported through significant additional investment from the EU through the CDPF, which was specifically requested by MoEYS. The teacher development workplan includes four priority activities:
This assignment specifically covers the development of teacher educator professional standards, the development of a teacher training curriculum framework for PSTTCs, Provincial Teacher Training Centres (PTTCs) and RTTCs, and the review of the preschool teacher training curriculum.

The purpose of this assignment is to provide high quality technical support to MoEYS’ Teacher Training Department (TTD) and the three Teacher Training Institutes – PSTTC, PTTCs and RTTCs for the following:
