Steering Committee

The TTF Steering Committee guides the work of the Secretariat and sets the strategic and thematic direction of the TTF. It is composed of representatives of the major constituencies of its membership. Steering Committee members are elected for a two-year renewable mandate.

Two elected co-Chairs guide the work of the Steering Committee. One co-Chair represents the member countries whilst the other represents the funding members. They are each elected for a period of two years.


The TTF Steering Committee has the following roles and responsibilities:

  • provide strategic and thematic guidance to the Secretariat on the Strategic Objectives and related activities including reviewing the annual work plan;
  • take note of progress made in implementation and report back to the TTF;
  • act as an essential communication channel with the wider TTF membership to keep them informed of, and committed to, the TTF’s work;
  • promote the work of the TTF internationally by attending global conferences and meetings addressing teacher issues; and
  • review the work of the Secretariat, including the Secretariat prepared annual work plan and report.
