Audit of USAID/Pakistan’s Pre-Service Teacher Education Program.

Country: Pakistan
Fiscal Year: 2010
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: No

The objective of the Pre-Service Teacher Education Program (Pre-STEP) is to improve the quality of basic education in Pakistan by strengthening teachers’ education and skills. The program will directly benefit new and practicing teachers by helping them gain revised and upgraded teacher qualifications. This $75 million, 5-year program will enable the nonprofit Education Development Center and the Pre-STEP team to partner with the Ministry of Education, the Higher Education Commission, selected universities, and the district-level colleges responsible for the training and certification of pre-service teachers. By providing intensive support and training in student-centered teaching practices, assistance with curriculum design, development and implementation of a measurable system of teaching standards, and appropriate incentives and accreditation policies, Pre-STEP will assist Pakistan in producing teachers prepared to meet the educational demands of the 21st century.

This audit will determine whether USAID/Pakistan’s Pre-Service Teachers Education Program is helping teachers improve their professional qualifications.
