STEPCam (Strengthening Teacher Education Programmes in Cambodia)

Project name :

STEPCam Programme

Location :


STEPCam (Strengthening Teacher Education Programmes in Cambodia) is a three years initiative designed by UNESCO and financed through the fixed part of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and UNESCO CapED to support the Ministry of Education Youth and Sports (MoEYS) efforts to improve the quality of teaching and learning in the early grades in Cambodia.

Launched in June 2018 the Programme supports the long term objectives of the MoEYS as outlined in the Education Strategic Plan 2019-2023 and stems from the joint commitment of UNESCO and the MoEYS in ensuring Cambodia achieves SDG 4 - Education by 2030.

Spanning across four inter-related programmatic components the STEPCam Programme comprises a coherent set of interventions aimed at supporting two key policy objectives of MoEYS, namely: (i) fostering inclusive and equitable education; and (ii) ensuring effective leadership and management of the education staff.

  • Component 1: Development and Implementation of CPD Management Systems
  • Component 2: INSET professional development of teachers of Early Grade (EG) learning
  • Component 3: Upgrading qualifications of trainers in Provincial Teacher Training Colleges (PTTCs)
  • Component 4: Renovation of PTTC facilities

STEPCam is the third consecutive Global Partnership for Education grant for Cambodia since 2008.
