Education

Program goal: Children achieve their full potential as learners in safe, inclusive, well-managed schools that are supported by duty bearers, parents and local community members.

Our priorities in Education include:

  • Classroom practice: Continue to prioritise supporting ethnic minorities in promoting local culture and language development including native language and Vietnamese as an instruction language in accordance with the new general education curriculum and Early Childhood Education (ECE) curriculum. In addition, supporting children with disabilities (CWDs) to be inclusive in classroom/school through capacity building for teachers and accessible school facility improvement for CWDs.
  • School governance and educational leadership: Work on strengthening the capacity of school leaders, especially at semi-boarding schools, on school development plans with a participatory approach in which disability and gender inclusions will be integrated.
  • Education System: Strengthen semi-boarding school system – a specialising school system in ethnic minority areas – through building capacity of district/provincial governments on promoting semi-boarding school policies. Additionally, working with stakeholders at district and provincial levels to promote the implementation of disability inclusive education in preschool and primary school system will be prioritised in the upcoming year.
  • Supportive families and communities: Continue to promote parent and community engagement at schools with the priority focus being given to semiboarding schools, parents with children aged under 3-year-old about early education and families of CWD/support groups.
  • Promoting and piloting Technology for Education: through exploring ways to improving IT capacity of teachers/school managers to adapt to virtual learning activities, online digital resources such as digital libraries/e-books developed by the government and other development organisations.
