HRH Princess Norodom Arunrasmy officially opened the Cambodian-British Center for

Teacher Education on May 11.

The Center, funded by Britain's Overseas Development Administration and run by the

nonprofit Center for British Teachers, offers training courses for English teachers

in Phnom Penh's schools, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education. Over 300

Cambodian teachers are expected to participate in Center programs this year.

Future plans include an expansion of the Center's programs outside Phnom Penh later

this year, in cooperation with the British VSO, which will provide four teacher trainers.

Working with Teacher Training Centers, courses will be offered in Battambang, Kompong

Cham, Takeo and Kandal.

Commenting on the Center's long-term capabilities, British Ambassador David Burns

said at the ceremony, "We hope to find a united Cambodia where this center will

be a national resource."
