Policy Dialogue Forum

The Policy Dialogue Forum aims to raise awareness among members and partners of the TTF on crucial issues for the implementation of the Teacher Target in SDG 4 and Education 2030 agenda. The Forum seeks to have an impact on country policies, reflections and debates. It promotes participatory approaches, dialogue and exchanges of experience in evidence-based teacher policy formulation and implementation.

Through the Forum, the TTF offers a platform for education actors and teacher stakeholders (including policy makers, teachers, representatives from teacher organizations, civil society organizations, researchers, the UN and other international organizations, private sector organizations and foundations) to delve into what it takes to teach and educate children, youth and adults, and reaffirm the relevance of education as an equalizing factor in society. In bringing multiple stakeholders together, the Forum fosters a more effective and focused exchange of knowledge and experiences, and creates a unique opportunity to build alliances for advocacy and resource mobilization.

The Forum offers a unique opportunity to address the efforts of the TTF members to approach teacher-related matters in different regions and socioeconomic contexts.

The Policy Dialogue Forum is one of the flagship activities in the 2022-2025 Strategic Plan. Following a review process in the 2018-2021 period, the Forum will be organized on a biennial cycle.

In 2024, the 14th Policy Dialogue Forum will be hosted by the government of South Africa. It will be themed Addressing global teacher shortages: Dignifying, diversifying and valorizing the profession. Click here to visit the official event's page.
