Educational inequity is one of Cambodia’s greatest crises; it is severely diminishing the life opportunities of many youth. Only 1 in 10 children who start school in Cambodia today will finish high school. Socio-economic factors, limited teacher supply, and a lack of teacher training and support continue to limit access to a quality education.
Working alongside the Teach For Cambodia Fellows, you will be part of designing and facilitating a teacher development program in Phnom Penh and Kandal province. We will work with the Teach for Cambodia Fellows and their school districts to facilitate a cycle of observations, coaching sessions and workshops that focus on key areas of pedagogy and practical applications in the classroom.
Teach For Cambodia (TFC) exists to solve the problem of educational inequity by training a new pool of effective teachers, TFC Fellows, to work in high-need schools across Kandal, Phnom Penh, and Kampong Cham. With a focus on sustainable, system-level solutions to build school capacity, Teach for Cambodia is expanding educational opportunities for students and developing lifelong leaders and advocates for educational equity.
You will fly into Phnom Penh and spend the first few days learning more about Cambodian culture and the country’s education system. We will have team training sessions and planning time alongside the Teach for Cambodia (TFC) staff to jointly develop the program. LRTT Fellows will meet with the TFC Fellows to learn more about the educational landscape of the region and begin planning teacher development sessions.
Travel to the teachers’ schools to conduct lesson observations and coaching alongside the Teacher for Cambodia Fellows. Following the in-classroom observations and coaching sessions, you will have the opportunity to deliver peer-to-peer workshops alongside the Teach for Cambodia teachers. This cycle of workshop, observation and coaching will ensure that your teachers can get the most out of your training to enhance their lessons.
In the final part of the Fellowship, you will support your teachers in a last round of observations and feedback sessions. During these coaching sessions, you will spend time discussing individual goals and plans to continue teacher development. The program will conclude with an awards ceremony and celebration, where LRTT Fellows, TFC Fellows and Cambodian teachers will get to share and reflect on what they have learned and how they have grown across the Fellowship.
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.
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.
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.
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.
By working in close partnership with locally-led teacher development organisations and by taking a data-driven approach to our work, we are able to track teacher development to evaluate the impact of our training and continually improve our course.
A professional and cultural exchange between teachers working in very different contexts, brought together by a passion for education.
Build meaningful relationships with like-minded teachers, open to learn and share their experiences, and grow through a unique shared experience.
An opportunity to learn from inspiring people, share new experiences, and create lifelong memories.
