Project ID 542SYR1002

In order to understand best approaches to improve the teaching and learning environments and enhance learning opportunities in Syria, the programme aims at enhancing the teaching and learning environment in basic education, including training of education personnel and implementation of School Improvement Plan. Furthermore, the programme will provide a Catch-up Programme for Syrian youth at risk of dropping out of school and those who have returned to school after many years of absence due to conflict. The Catch-up Programme directly responds to the learning loss from the COVID-19 outbreak.
