Canadian teachers’ federation: Professional development and development cooperation

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



Abstract:

In 1962, Canadian teachers began providing PD services beyond our borders with the first CTF “Project Overseas” workshop held in Nigeria. Professional Development has remained a part of CTF International development cooperation ever since, and now, through Project Overseas approximately 50 Canadian teachers volunteer their time and expertise and work with their colleagues in 10 to 13 countries each year. As well, CTF Inter-action teams work overseas with member organizations of Education International to overcome specific barriers to quality public education for all. These barriers are identified by teacher unions and their members and, in partnership with CTF, strategies and interventions are built into plans. A variety of multi-year EFA projects have resulted, designed to achieve such things as creating girl friendly school environments, developing and implementing peace education, providing vocational education, and reaching marginalized teachers and communities in deprived areas of Africa, Asia and elsewhere.
CTF supported professional development projects are intended to leave, within the teacher organization, a legacy of strengthened service to members through continuous PD. Also, by including government and other civil society organizations in the planning and implementation phases of projects, national teacher organizations have a direct influence on the national education plan, and take a leadership role within the education sector in their country.
