Morocco, Wallonia-Brussels Federation Sign Collaboration Agreement for Preschool Generalization
Morocco and the Wallonia-Brussels Federation signed Tuesday a collaboration agreement aimed at supporting the generalization of a quality preschool in the Kingdom.
The collaboration agreement was signed during a video conference by minister of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research, Saaid Amzazi, and Minister-President of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, Pierre-Yves Jehole.
Part of the strengthening of bilateral cooperation between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Wallonia-Brussels Federation in education and training, the agreement focuses on improving the teaching of languages and cultures, in addition to strengthening skills in Morocco for sustainable co-development, said a joint statement.
In addition, the two ministers discussed ways and means of intensifying collaboration in the areas of initial and in-service training for teachers and pre-school supervisory staff, the teaching of languages and cultures, and the improvement of conditions for the care of children with special needs.
Speaking on this occasion, Amzazi welcomed the start of the joint CAAPPP program (Certificate of Ability to Support Preschool Pedagogical Practices) to train the first 300 Moroccan preschool inspectors.
This program, recalled the same source, is organized by Belgian schools in Morocco, in partnership with the Department of National Education and the 12 regional academies of education and training and led by a team of experts from the inspectorate of basic education, Belgian French-speaking universities and colleges of education.
For his part, Jehole said that the Wallonia-Brussels Federation backs Morocco, since 2000, in the structuring of preschool education, noting that the CAAPPP program, launched in January 2021, is part of the Action Plan of the 7th Joint Permanent Commission between our two governments.
On this occasion, the two ministers commended the exceptional relationship between Morocco and the Wallonia-Brussels Federation in terms of higher education and scientific research.
