The Secretariat's work programme on improving basic education is targeted to teacher education in Commonwealth countries. It is widely recognised that teachers are central to quality education. A well prepared and motivated teaching force is essential for effective teaching and learning. The Secretariat is engaged, therefore, in a range of measures which include seminars, workshops and development, as well as the publication of resource materials for the training and professional development of teachers.
