How we work
Education is a dynamic process in society that transmits accumulated knowledge and values from one generation to the next, and shapes individuals’ mental and physical skills. Education can and must contribute to creating future human resources in society.
Education can also contribute to dynamic processes of information accumulation and transmission across generations and amongst diverse populations to inspire life-long learning for all members of society. To develop the Thai education system through this vision, QLF not only needs to understand the dynamics of information accumulation and transmission in Thailand (either via traditional schooling mechanisms or via modern advanced technology) to address the weaknesses and inefficiency of the system, but also needs to identify effective practices that inspire learning for all Thai citizens.
Ultimately, QLF must be capable of effectively changing the direction of the education system in Thailand to make Thai society a healthier and more equitable society. In other words, QLF must be able to govern the dynamics of the education system to inspire “healthy life-long learning” in Thailand.
Education is not only a matter for Education agencies but also for the whole society. Therefore, we aim to work in partnership with organizations, communities and individuals to make learning a central part of our daily lives.
QLF’s role is to act as a catalyst as well as a change agent in supporting quality learning and education reform in Thailand. Our work will not compete with work undertaken by other organizations implementing educational activities. QLF, on the contrary, pledges to accelerate quality learning and will make use of its flexibility in management and budget to help initiate new ideas, and facilitate and help transform education/learning reform opportunities into concrete actions. QLF will also focus on its roles as an assistant and facilitator, rather than being an actor.
