Support to Primary Education Project (SPEP)

A Professional Support Structure for Primary Education


The Area of Support seeks to:

raise the status of primary teachers and of all those involved in primary education

provide increased opportunities for professional growth to those involved in
primary education

to create a professional support structure for primary education.

A Professional Career Structure for Primary Education is a national TED/Danida
initiative, based at the University of Zambia. Locating the Academic Secretariat at
UNZA is significant in at least two major respects:

It is felt by many working in this field that all teachers completing a
course of professional training should receive a University award

Traditionally, UNZA has been reluctant to acknowledge primary education as a field worthy of university study and there is a resultant
lack of capacity which needs to be addressed.
