International TA and National TA


Background: MoEYS is currently implementing its five-year Education Strategic Plan (ESP) 2019–2023, which articulates incremental steps or measures needed to develop human resources that are of the very highest quality and are ethically sound to develop a knowledge-based society within Cambodia. MoEYS is planning to develop its Capacity Development Master Plan (CDMP) 2019-2023 to respond to the policy objectives of the ESP (2019-2023).
The CDMP 2019-2023 will serve as MoEYS’s blueprint for comprehensive capacity development of the entire ministry, with a focus on identifying, and planning future capacity development responses at organizational, institutional and individual levels to help address implementation of the ESP and Cambodia’s SDG4 roadmap. The plan will articulate what is required for MoEYS to ensure effective leadership and management of education staff at all levels through a ministry-led, needs based, comprehensive, systematic and sustainable capacity development approach.
