The event was presided over by H.E. Dr. Nath Bunroeun, the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, and H.E. Sardar Umar Alam, UNESCO Head of Office and UNESCO Representative to Cambodia.

According to the UNESCO, STEPCam sits as one of Cambodia’s largest and most comprehensive teacher education programme implemented since 2018, with support from the Global Partnership for Education (GPE).

Despite the COVID-19 threat, STEPCam has been developed to increase the capacity of Cambodia’s teachers, recognising that well-prepared and motivated teachers are the single most important factor at school level in ensuring quality learning for every child in Cambodia.
