UNESCO, its International Institute for Capacity Building (IICBA) in Africa and the Teacher Task Force (TTF), are organizing a series of seminars in 2021 for national policy-makers and other relevant stakeholders in Africa to increase their knowledge and capacity in relation to the teacher policy development process, the dimensions of teacher policy and how policy development work can be better operationalized at the national level. This is a critical area needing attention to ensure that the development of holistic and comprehensive teacher policies is aligned to national frameworks and education sector plans that define teachers’ roles, rights and determine their work.

During the meeting, two key resources will be discussed: the Teacher Policy Development Guide (TPDG) and IICBA’s regionally contextualized guide Teaching Policies and Learning Outcomes in Sub-Saharan Africa: Issues and Options. Based on inputs from the first virtual session, follow-up workshop(s) will be planned between September and December 2021 on specific topics of teacher policy development.

The workshop will be held in English, French and Arabic with simultaneous interpretation. It will also include language specific working groups to discuss issues related to teacher policy development in greater depth.
