The Teacher Training Program of the Armenian National Education Committee (ANEC) ended on Saturday, May 18, following a year during which 25 participating teachers attended classes taught by experts in different subjects that are part of the Armenian school curricula, including language and history.

At the end of the course, the participants were joined by His Eminence Archbishop Anoushavan, Prelate, in a videoconference, along with ANEC’s chairwoman Houry Boyamian and Director, Hera Makhoulian. Archbishop Anoushavan highlighted the importance of this course, praising the participating teachers for devoting some of their free time on Saturday to it, and stressed that the Prelacy will always support projects that contribute to enhancing Armenian education.  

The 18-class course was led by experts including Dr. Hagop Tcholakian, who taught Armenian Language and Literature; Drs. Mher Hovhannisyan and Vartan Matiossian, Armenian History; Very Rev. Fr. Boghos Tinkjian and Rev. Fr. Stephan Baljian, Armenian Church and Religion; Dr. Khatchig Mouradian, Armenian Culture, and Nayiri Megerdichian, Technology.
