Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

USAID/Morocco will present a historical overview of programs developed in response to evolving Ministry priorities, culminating with the current program, ITQANE. With its focus on quality in teacher training and student learning so students become productive citizens, USAID support of Morocco’s education system is a demonstration of liberation as both a process and goal in education.

The presentation will be laid out to demonstrate the emphasis on different themes over time, describing how projects were implemented as well as lessons learned.
1. Improving Access and Quality
Starting in 1996, USAID programs worked to increase access to primary schools, particularly for rural girls; improve teacher practice; and encourage teachers and directors to take initiative, to be creative, to link lessons to life, and to reinforce communities around schools. Technology was introduced as a pedagogical tool and entrepreneurial and other life skills developed.
2. Equity
USAID promoted girls’ education on the national and local levels through gender-sensitive pedagogy and access programs.
3. Civic Education
USAID brought together partners from the U.S., Morocco and other countries to develop and share experiences to reinforce civic attitudes with primary, secondary, tertiary level students and with out-of-school youth.
4. Education to employment
USAID enhanced the employability and entrepreneurship of in- and out-of-school youth. Youth were trained in technology and “job-preparedness” and offered career guidance.
5. Quality and Relevance
Today, USAID’s ITQANE program is designed to institutionalize successful training models developed under previous activities. Best practices will be integrated into the newly re-designed Teacher Training Structure.
