40 educators selected for training in US
ISLAMABAD: Forty teachers selected across the country will leave for the United States (US) on Friday to attend a professional training programme for the secondary level educators at the Plymouth State University.

The pre-departure orientation ceremony will be held on Thursday here at the Hill View Hotel likely to be attended by Federal Minister for Education Sardar Ahmed Assef Ali and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Academic Programmes, Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs.

The Plymouth State University, USA, initiated the Pakistani Education Leadership Institute (PELI) project in 2004, as annual four-week professional training program and to date, 120 educators have benefited from this opportunity.

The number of educators has been doubled up to 40 this year and these participants would start their training from July 5. The funding of PELI is mobilised through an annual grant since the fiscal year 2003-04 from the US Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The grant is awarded to the Plymouth State University and the project is coordinated in Pakistan through services rendered by Idara-e-Taleem-o-Aagahi. The Pakistani educators for PELI are selected through a rigorous merit based process for their leadership capabilities. They represent secondary level public and private sector schools as well as teacher education institutions.The news
