Thirty one (31) NDRE officials and representatives from the 3 CLCs attended the In-country Debriefing, which was aimed at identifying the best in the implementation of equivalency education and the role of the Community Learning Centres in the Philippines, Nepal, Thailand, Indonesia and Bangladesh with the intent to develop relevant lessons learned into an action plan for adoption in Timor Leste.
The proposed action plan was culled from the presentation of the Study Teams that zeroed in on lessons learned on the implementation of equivalency education and the role of the CLCs in the five countries. The proposed action plan
would serve as the participants’ proposal for possible adoption by NDRE in order to improve the implementation of equivalency Education in Timor Leste and strengthen the involvement of the CLCs.
