Case Study

Teachers Professional Development: An inter-agency approach

This case study was collected as part of Teachers in Crisis Contexts (TiCC) Event Series to share compelling examples of programs and practices that positively influence improvements in teachers’ work conditions and teaching practice.  For more case studies, click here.


The inter-agency approach aims to focus on the need to link humanitarian and development efforts so that teaching quality is improved systematically. Integrated, continuous teacher professional development (CPD) is therefore a priority, rather than disconnected and intermittent one-off trainings. The aim of the interagency working group is to develop and implement a systemised approach to strengthen existing structures and programmes. The working group was developed in March 2019 and it is still currently in progress; priorities and actions are continuously being developed and worked on. However, this case study will provide a critical review of its implementation so far.
