Following decades of conflict and tumult, almost half of Afghanistan's children are still not attending schools. Despite an increase of teachers since 2001, 58% of Afghan teachers do not have the minimum required qualifications. The country lacks common and appropriate standards for certifying teachers and accrediting teacher training institutions. Consequently, the quality of education in Afghanistan is poor.
- Improve the standards of teacher training institutions and quality of existing teachers within the education system
- Enhance the quality of classroom teaching
- Increase equity in the delivery of education services across Afghanistan
- Contribute to greater access to education for boys and girls
- Improve the ability of the Teacher Education Directorate and TTCs to administer and implement education policy reform
