Education

The recent decades of war and internal conflict have turned Cambodia into one of the poorest countries in the world, despite an abundance of natural resources. And, in spite of improvements in the human resources sector since 1979, social indicators are still at a low level compared with neighboring countries.
There is thus the need to promote the development and maturation of the latent potential of Cambodia's human resources, through the nurturing of the intellectual development and encouraging a culture of meritocracy. This requires the implacement of a dynamically-responsive education system, which can adapt and use the most appropriate modern pedagogical approaches in order to maximise returns on the investment (monetary and otherwise) made by both the administration and their prospective targets.
Our aim is to produce graduate teachers who can act as role-models and meet these expectations, and thus play a role in guiding Cambodia’s future path.
