COVID-19 Home-Based Learning
In response to the pandemic, TeacherFOCUS, education partners and Migrant Learning Centers have needed to reimagine education. As a result, MLCs are focusing on home-based continuous education for migrant children, social emotional support for students and safe school preparations for when the Thai Ministry of Education allows MLCs to reopen.
TaskFORCE is a team which provides support for out-of-school children to enroll in Thai or Migrant Schools. Starting in 2020, the TaskFORCE team has visited communities where parents want to send their children to Thai School. These field visits allow the team to meet with parents whose children have dropped out from school due to difficult circumstances. Since the process and Thai language are both barriers, the TaskFORCE team explains to students and parents when and how to enroll in Thai schools.
Teacher Capacity Building
Teacher capacity building aims to improve migrant education for both teachers and students, with the ultimate goal of official recognition by the Myanmar MOE. Teachers hone their practice, reflecting on their strengths and areas of improvement using TeacherFOCUS's observation tool, based on Myanmar's Teacher Competency Standards Framework.
