Teacher Education and Qualification programs/systems in the Arab World - Regional Workshop concept note

Enhancing education has become one of the most significant national investments on the long term, given that quality education builds the capabilities of societies. The contemporary practical data indicate that teacher efficiency and effectiveness play a major role in student learning and performance, given that the teacher is an important input of the educational system. 

In light of the Regional Center of Quality and Excellence in Education (RCQE) pursuit to improve all factors of the educational process in the Arab countries, a study on “Teacher Education and Qualification Programs/systems in the Arab world” has been conducted under the supervision of RCQE.
