ABOUT THE BUPE TREE PROJECT

 

The Burma UK Partnership for Education (BUPE) is a £24 million DFID funded programme expected to run for five years with a possible extension for a further two years.

TREE is an ambitious programme working with teacher educators at the 25 education colleges across Burma to improve the English proficiency of teacher educators (TEs), help the TEs implement a curriculum to train new teachers, reform teaching practice, support TEs to get more involved in research and support inclusion of disabled children in education in Burma.
