PLI-GAIA-575x327The Teaching Practice International Programme (PLI) is an initiative of  the Advancement Coordination of Higher Education Personnel (Capes) whose main goal is to enhance the quality of undergraduate courses, prioritising teaching courses and teachers-to-be. This will be done by expanding and stimulating actions aimed at basic education and the implementation of new curriculum policies for teacher training, with emphasis on primary and secondary education.

Students on teaching practice courses at Brazilian universities may stay up to 24 months at one of the universities in the programme.
