Supporting the development of National Education in Syria - Second training workshop

Based on the successes achieved in the second educational opportunity program in terms of access to students in need of educational support and wide geographic coverage of the program, UNESCO decided to continue their support for the 2017-2018 academic year. Therefore, it is envisioned the need to launch the second TOT, to train key trainers from the various governorates targeted for the program, which will begin in the summer of 2018 and to continue in 2019.

The objective of this second training of trainers course for the Second Chance and Catch-up Programmes is to build the capacity of a core team of local trainers with training skills, accelerated learning concepts and psychosocial support skills to be prepared for teacher training to the Accelerated Learning Programme.

Primary and Secondary Education in Syria prior to the Syrian crisis were granted to almost everyone in Syria. However, after the crisis millions of children lost Education opportunity, but the crisis has also greatly affected the learning of those who have managed to stay in school. Recognizing the importance of education and responding to the educational needs of children, UNESCO and the Ministry of Education have set up a two-month intensive program of during the summer 2016 and 2017. The main objective of this programme is to enroll children who have failed in the final exams with an intensive summer program to prepare and pass the exam.
The UNESCO Regional Office for Education in the Arab States has organized in early 2016 the first TOT which was a training workshop for 20 national trainers in teaching skills in accelerated learning programmes. The team was assigned to undertake similar training inside Syria at the central level and governorates in 2016 and 2017.
