UNESCO, in partnership with the Ministry of Education (MoE), is working to strengthen pre-service  teacher education in Myanmar through reform measures outlined in the National Education Strategic Plan (NESP) 2016-21. The project named “Strengthening pre-service Teacher Education in Myanmar (STEM)” addresses four fundamentally important aspects of pre-service teacher education. These include:

  • formulating a policy framework of pre-service teacher education and identifying standards for quality assurance,
  • improving a system of pre-service teacher training institutions – Education Colleges (ECs) by designing the new four-year degree programme of pre-service teacher education and creating good networks to accumulate and share knowledge and experiences of all ECs,
  • developing institutional/management and human resource capacities of ECs, and
  • mainstreaming inclusion and equity issues in teacher education including Education for
    Peace and Sustainable Development (EPSD)

Under this reform process, the importance of the continuous professional development (CPD) for all EC staff was recognized and the Department of Higher Education (DHE), with support of STEM, developed the national Continuous Professional Development Framework (CPD) for ECs through a consultative process with the ECs and other major stakeholders. Within this framework, CPD on Education for Peace and Sustainable Development is prioritized as part of the equity and inclusive education initiatives. While there was already commitment and support to mainstreaming education for peace and sustainable development in the new EC curriculum, CPD activities on Whole School Approach to ESD aim to support continuous professional development for EC staffs in order to transform the education institutions by equipping equity, inclusion and sustainability principles in every aspect of institution life such as school governance, teaching and learning, campus, and community partnership.

Based on CPD framework and the Individual Consultant is sought to develop a training module which aims to improve the EC Staffs’ knowledge and skills on Whole School Approach to ESD focusing on the following areas:

  • To deeply understand concepts and themes related to Whole School Approach to Education for Peace and Sustainable Development and;
  • to enhance knowledge and skills on how to transform the educational institutions as Center of Excellence by applying whole school approach.
