INCET conducts various surveys in developing countries to understand the actual state of school education and teacher training in those countries and to obtain data that will help us offer more appropriate support for teacher education. In 2005 we conducted surveys in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, the Republic of South Africa, and the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. In 2006 we are scheduled to do baseline surveys in South Pacific Island nations such as the Republic of Fiji, the Republic of Vanuatu and the Independent State of Samoa.
