TEACHER in Pakistan
“Teacher” is the core to achieve quality education Pakistan pursues. The teaching force in Pakistan is estimated to be 1.35m working in government schools from primary to higher education.
There are 275 teacher training institutions providing pre-service training (certificates, diplomas and degrees). In addition, there are 300 teacher training resource centres in the districts.
The teacher training institutions are managed by the Bureau of Curriculum and Extension for pre-service programmes while the Provincial Institutes of Teacher Education (PITEs) are responsible for in-service training programmes.
In last decades, there have been a number of initiatives and projects to improve teacher and teacher education in Pakistan. Most of those were financially supported by the government, donors and NGOs and carried out in isolation.
