Training of trainers for young people in the twenty-first century: challenges, experiments and proposals

The second international seminar of curriculum experts for Latin America focused on the theme “The training of trainers for young people in the twenty-first century: challenges, experiments and proposals for their pre-service and in-service training.”

The meeting discussed training procedures that would bridge the gap between out-of-date training modules using obsolete curricula and the challenges of present-day curricula. It concentrated on
(i) a review of the challenges facing secondary education;
(ii) current attempts at reform;
(iii) transversal skills required of secondary teachers; and
(iv) suggestions for regional co-operation.

Some 200 teachers and students for the Maldonado Regional Centre for Teacher Training (CERP) participated in the seminar. In this way the IBE's activity contributed to the training of the educational community. Themes Teacher-training policies, youth, secondary education curriculum, teacher qualifications, international co-operation
