The Saudi Program for the Development and Reconstruction of Yemen (SDRPY) signed on Thursday an agreement to implement the International Professional Teaching Certificates (IPTC) project with King Saud University, represented by the King Abdullah Institute for Research and Consulting Studies.
The agreement aims to unify efforts and facilitate the implementation of the project with development partners to improve the professional competence of teachers in Yemen.
The project, which targets male and female teachers in various disciplines and educational levels, aims at enabling them to obtain the IPTC to achieve the Yemeni Education Ministry’s education goals, in pursuit of effective development of human resources in education.
Several executive partners are part of the project, including the King Saud University and the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
Saudi Ambassador to Yemen and General Supervisor of the SDRPY Mohammed bin Saeed Al-Jaber stated that the project seeks to guarantee the continuity of learning and professional development among teachers.
It also enables teachers to perform their duties and trains them on efficiency, he added.
The SDRPY has supported Yemen’s education sector through 52 development projects and initiatives, including the establishment of 27 schools and centers for gifted children.
The SDRPY projects also include the building and renovation of universities, providing learning tools for educational facilities, printing and distributing textbooks, and launching safe transportation services to schools and universities.
Under the SDRPY, thousands of male and female students in Yemen have been given educational opportunities in a stimulating and integrated environment.
The SDRPY has implemented 224 development projects and initiatives in various Yemeni governorates to serve the people in seven main sectors: education, health, water, energy, transport, agriculture, and fishery, and building the capacity of government institutions and development programs.
