Overall Goal and objectives of the course
The goal of the course is to provide an in-service training for the CEW’s and other extension workers to improve their skills and gain a formal academic qualification.
The 3 month in service course provides an intensive training that focuses on improving competencies of the CEW. The course will take a blended approach; residential and eLearning.
This is a competency based in-service course for the CEWs in Cambodia, designed in a Learner-centric format.
The entire subject matter is divided into short multiple units, the learner does not have to commit to a longer stretch of time to devote to training. This is practical, considering the CEW’s are also busy working. Each concept is focused in a different module. This provides enough time to trainee to understand and assimilate the knowledge that is shared without being burdened with information overload. The learner also gets a chance to apply their knowledge and get motivated to move on to the next unit in the curriculum.
What is e-Learning?

This online study has many benefits for all trainees who do not have time to study at school and time to do other work.
