Provincial project coordination teams form a commission to open catch-up trainings and to carry out necessary procedures. The Commission consists of at least 3 persons under the Presidency of the Provincial Project Coordinator. The Commission examines and approves the applications of candidates and after relevant evaluations, assigns teachers to schools requesting teachers for catch-up trainings.
