Under the SIREP Project, eleven member countries of the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO) were invited to take stock of their teaching competency standards, policies, capacity building programs, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation activities. The study explores commonalities in teaching competency standards across the region that will support active and vigorous regional complementation on capacity building, teacher exchange, and lifelong learning.
Through the project, the Competency Framework for Southeast Asian
Teachers of the 21st Century was developed and finalized in 2009. The project has also developed a a menu of short course packages for teachers in Southeast Asia, GURO21 (Gearing Up Responsible and Outstanding Teachers in Southeast Asia in the 21st Century).
On November 2017, the updated version of the Teacher Competency Framework has been approved by the High Officials of the SEAMEO member countries. SEAMEO INNOTECH worked on this project as commissioned by the Teachers Council of Thailand.
