It helps new and practicing teachers gain revised and upgraded teaching qualifications through the newly introduced four-year Bachelor’s Degree in Education (B.Ed.) and a two-year Associate Degree in Education (ADE).

The USAID Teacher Education Project has so far awarded 21 such research grants to partner universities and apex bodies to conduct research on effective teacher preparation strategies and their implementation. The conference reviewed and assessed how the strategies will affect student-learning outcomes and future education policies.
