Teacher training component focuses on the improvement of teaching and learning quality at secondary education in the North and Centre of Vietnam (Thai Nguyen, Quang Ninh, Nghe An, Quang Nam and Quang Ngai) through an integrated support for Active Teaching and Learning.
Education Environment (EE) and Information Communication and Technology (ICT) are the main tools to promote ATL change process. The approaches and innovative teaching methodologies, the ICT integration and best practices on EE and ICT in the past become gradually the core of teacher training component in a short-term or medium-term.
VVOB programme is in line with the requirement of Ministry of Education and Training on changing from teacher-centered to learner-centered methodology, in which the teachers become process facilitators and students play an active role in learning process. This is also one of the main points of the movement "Child friendly school, active student" initiated by MOET in 2008.
VVOB supports the teacher training institues (TTIs) in five provinces in adjusting training method, ensuring students gain necessary competencies to become teachers who are able to apply ATL and learner-centered methodology. Also, VVOB supports TTIs in developing ATL materials. ICT and EE are good means to start up this process.
