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.
Teachers in Crisis Contexts Training Pack
The Training Pack for Primary School Teachers in Crisis Contexts is intended to build basic teaching competencies for unqualified or underqualified teachers often recruited to teach in refugee/IDP camps and in a range of other emergency settings. This inter-agency, open source training pack is available in English.
Peer Coaching for Teachers in Crisis Contexts
The Peer Coaching Pack compliments the Training for Primary School Teachers in Crisis Contexts training pack. Peer Coaching is continuous professional development led by teachers for teachers. Peer Coaching provides this support through two main activities: 1) Teacher Learning Circles (TLCs) and 2) Classroom Observations.
