INEE Minimum Standards Case Study: Refugee Teacher Compensation in Malaysia

This case study describes the use of the INEE Guidance Notes on Teacher Compensation and the INEE Minimum Standards in providing compensation to refugee teachers in Malaysia. While planning for and implementing a system for teacher compensation, UNHCR utilized both good practice tools to ensure that they considered issues such as the qualifications and working hours of teachers, the processes for the actual transfer of the compensation and the mechanisms to ensure accountability from the schools. The case study also outlines a number of challenges and lessons learnt.
