USAID for teachers in Pakistan

The Ministry of Education in collaboration with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Higher Education Commission has  launched the Pre-Service Teacher Education Programme (Pre-STEP). The essence of the programme is to provide state-of-the-art teaching to the teachers and university and college level. The programme involved a total of $75mln and spans over 5 years.
According the the U.S Ambassador in Pakistan,
“The Pre-STEP will work in partnership with Pakistan’s Higher Education Commission and the Ministry of Education to build on existing structures and programmes. It will support 15 universities and 75 teacher colleges as instruments for change of academic standards in teachers’ education. This assistance from the American people to Pakistan is demonstration of our belief that improved educated Pakistan will lead to a stronger, more prosperous Pakistan. We are working with the Government of Pakistan and Pakistani people to accomplish our shared vision of better education in Pakistan” (The Dawn)
