SDG Quality Education & Lifelong Learning (Basic Education)

Facilitator : Elvis Fernandes Brites da Cruz

Literacy Numeracy

Values Professionalism
Our Vision
In 2025 the population of Timor-Leste will be
educated, knowledgeable and qualified to live
a long and productive life, respectful of peace,
family and positive traditional values. All
individuals will have the same opportunities
to access to a quality education that will allow
them to participate in the economical, social
and political development process, ensuring
social equity and national unity.

Children between 3-5 years of age will have

access to begin their quality education in a school
that is close to the place where they live. In pre-
school they will develop the basic skills and
knowledge to be prepared for basic education.
Families, communities and local governments will
be involved in the decision making process and
through collaborative efforts we will build schools
that will satisfy all the requirements of early
childhood education.
Basic Education

Basic Education is universal, compulsory and free. The reform of

basic education will incorporate overall and guiding directives the
following four pillars of learning: learning to know, learning to do,
learning to live together and with others, and learning to be.

At 6 years of age, all children will have access to start basic

education. After completing 9 years of schooling, they will excel in
both official languages and learn English as their first foreign
language. They will also develop the basis for sound literacy and
numeracy skills, base competences and the core values of national
identity, Timorese history and culture.

How we define effective teacher professional
development and support?
When do we need to integrate on going
assessment, monitoring, and evaluation?
Do we have relevant and inclusive curriculum?
Do we conduct evaluation on textbook
content implementation with the ongoing
adjustment to learning needs?
