Spotlight on teacher supports. Evaluation of Australia’s investment in teacher development in Lao PDR (Lao version)

Abstract

The Australian Government is supporting the Government of Lao PDR to undertake significant primary education reforms through its flagship Basic Education Quality and Access in Lao PDR program (BEQUAL), including the roll-out of a new primary curriculum. Phase 1 of BEQUAL (2015-22) supported the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) to roll out the new primary curriculum in schools. BEQUAL support included teaching and learning materials, orientation training on the new curriculum, and education support grants. Phase 2 (2022-26) is focused on inclusive teaching practices, student engagement and improved learning outcomes. To understand progress and to make necessary adjustments, the Australian Government commissioned an independent evaluation. Led by the Australian Council for Educational Research, a multi-year study investigated how BEQUAL supported improved teaching quality and student learning. Here we take a closer look at teacher supports
