 Cambodian context

LRTT works with a small number of schools that are spread around the city of Siem Reap. There are many under-resourced schools in the area and this among other factors has led to low completion rates at primary school. Less than 40% of students continue to secondary school so boosting the quality of teaching in Siem Reap is of utmost importance.

Our objective

The goal is to grow the capacity of teachers in the Siem Reap area so students have access to a better quality education. We deliver the LRTT course to teachers which introduces key areas of pedagogy and how to implement these in lessons. Each Fellow works with a small number of teachers, visits them in their schools, observe their lessons then give coaching on improvements to their teaching.

The programme

Siem Reap NGOs

We work with a number of charities and educational organisations in Siem Reap. These NGOs are aligned to LRTT’s mission and allow us to make our training more sustainable through year-round initiatives in the community and ensures our teacher training reaches the schools that need it most.

Cultural introduction

The group will receive a cultural introduction to the Cambodian Education system including a crash course in the Khmer language. You will have the opportunity to visit some schools, meet with teachers and also make your baseline observations. Once you have built up a basic understanding of education in the schools, you will carry out two days of teaching and observation in the classrooms before planning two days of teacher training sessions.

Teacher training and workshops

Travel to your teachers’ schools on tuk-tuks to conduct observations of their lessons and coaching with them. Followed by the third conference day where you will deliver the teacher training sessions in pairs. This cycle of workshop, observation and coaching will ensure that your teachers can get the most out of your training to enhance their lessons.

Observations and coaching

Phase three begins with final visits to schools to conduct lesson observations and coach your teachers through the final improvements to their practice. This concludes the training process and you will award the teachers with their LRTT certificates at a graduation ceremony.

Fellow experience

Cambodia 2016

The other teachers on the programme were very professional and knowledgeable; testament to a very good selection process. It was amazing to work with the teachers, both Cambodian and other Fellows. Just sharing ideas is amazing.

Cambodia 2015

It massively exceeded my expectations. I had a wonderful time in Cambodia. The combination of the gratification gained from seeing the impact of the training on the teachers, the varied excursions and the group of like-minded people I was with made it the best experience I have ever had.

Jessica

Cambodia 2016

It's made me really admire the teachers in Cambodia in how they manage to deliver their curriculum with so little. The accommodation and location was brilliant too.

Jenna

Cambodia 2016

My confidence to speak to a room of professionals has greatly improved. Whilst I do this at work, I already know my colleagues. LRTT pushed me to develop professional relationships with other adults. I learnt so much from others, and by working together we developed some great ideas.
