Teachers in Crisis Contexts (TiCC) Working Group

The Teachers in Crisis Contexts (TiCC) Working Group was founded in April 2014 as an inter-agency effort to provide more and better support to teachers in crisis settings. Members of the group work together to identify problem areas in teacher management, development and support in crisis contexts and propose and provide inter-agency open-source solutions. The work of TiCC builds on INEE’s long-standing commitment to working with and for teachers in crisis settings.

Members of TiCC include individual members as well as members from the following organizations: Beyond Borders, Teachers College - Columbia University, Creative Associates International, Jusoor, IRC, LEGO Foundation, Norwegian Refugee Council, OXFAM, Right to Play, Save the Children Denmark, Save the Children UK, UNESCO Teacher Task Force, UNHCR, UNICEF, Universidad de los Andes, UNRWA, USAID, and War Child Holland.
