Pakistan’s Khyber Province - on the northwest frontier with Afghanistan – in September announced a 1 billion rupee (£23 million) teacher training programme for 83,000 school teachers, with partners the British Council to pay 30 per cent of the cost. Attacks by the Taliban on schools in the Province have included the 2014 Peshawar Army Public School Massacre.
Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai survived being shot on her way to school in Khyber’s Swat Valley in 2012. Read more on the Khyber Province teacher training initiative here http://www.radio.gov.pk/21-Sep-2016/kp-govt-launches-teachers-training-programme-in-collaboration-with-british-council
