BEEP (Basic Education Equivalency Programme)

Project name :

BEEP Programme

Location :

Cambodia

BEEP is a joint initiative of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) and the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training (MoLVT) with UNESCO support to provide flexible alternative education to out-of-school youth to complete lower secondary/basic education, equivalent to grade 9. BEEP enables the Cambodian youth to pursue their educational interest while continuing professional activities. Having a basic education qualification will enable them to build their knowledge and skills for further decent employment opportunities. Supported by the United Nations Joint Programme (UNJP) on Youth Employment in Cambodia, BEEP course is available online on Moodle, an open-source learning management system, which is now available in Khmer thanks to BEEP in collaboration with World Education’s EdTech Center. A total of 11 e-learning subjects are available for students to choose and learn from.  BEEP is being piloted in 10 centers (5 in Phnom Penh and 5 in Siem Reap). Enrolled students will be given free internet access by Smart Axiata to the e-learning courses and can take courses of their interests and needs at their own pace. Successful students who complete all required subjects and pass required assessments/examinations will be awarded basic education certificate and have a chance to continue their education either at vocational high schools or at TVET Secondary Schools.
