British council supporting Arab teachers to develop their professional skills
Under the patronage of HE Dr Omar Al Razaz, Minister of Education in Jordan, the British Council organised the regional inclusion conference in Amman on 16 February 2017.
The conference and the three days workshops,attended by policy makers and schools from Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt,Iraq,the Occupied Palestinian Territoriesand the UK, supported teachers to further develop effective inclusive practices by providing high quality continuing professional development and by enabling teachers and school leaders to collaborate and learn from each other through professional partnerships.
The British Council along with its regional and local partners are committed to ensuring that all children have access to high quality inclusive and equitable education. This clearly supports, amongst others, the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) target 4.5: Eliminate gender disparities in education and ensure equal access to all levels of education and vocational training for the vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples and children in vulnerable situations.
British Council Director Egypt, Jeff Streeter said: “At the British Council we focus a great deal on education and internationalisation. Through Connecting Classrooms we help students acquire the core skills required for the 21st century by which they can easily integrate within the global community. We appreciate our partnership with the Ministry of Education in Egypt, as we believe in working together. Education is the key enabler of a successful nation in our age and it is through excellence in education that economies grow, jobs are created, and students become creative problem solvers.”
