UNESCO Prize for Dominican Teacher Training Center

The Center of Excellence for Teacher Training at the Pontifical Catholic University Madre y Maestra (CETT-PUCMM) has won a global prize awarded by UNESCO, in recognition of its successful teaching process that has benefited 125,000 children in schools all over the Dominican Republic. One of their aims is to improve the quality of teaching reading and writing in the country’s most socially deprived areas.

UNESCO’s Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktum prize was established last year. It is awarded in recognition of exceptional results in improving teachers’ efficiency. The Center’s director Liliana Montenegro will receive part of the US$270,000 prize in Dubai on April 27, which will be shared with the Ali Institute of Education from Pakistan and the Centre Congolais Education Pour Tous from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
