Morocco and the United States launched on Monday a cooperation program destined to improve teachers’ training, the quality of learning and training to facilitate the integration of job seekers into the labor market.
Dubbed “Higher Education Partners-Morocco program”, this 5-year initiative is backed by the US Agency for International development and seeks to bolster the teachers’ professional careers, provide young Moroccans with the necessary tools to get a job and encourage scientific research.
Under this program, the University of Arizona will work together with Moroccan universities, regional education & training centers and experts on a comprehensive program for a better training of teachers in primary and qualifying secondary education as well as updating the curricula of bachelor’s degree in education.
This joint program is part of the strategic partnership sealed by the two countries. Washington supports Morocco’s progressive reforms engaged to increase social and economic opportunity for all citizens.
USAID’s programs for Morocco focus on youth employability, citizen participation in governance, and educational attainment at the primary school level.
