The Teachers in Crisis Contexts Collaborative (TiCC) 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: Aflatoun, Child Fund, Columbia University’s Teachers College, Creative, Fordham University, FHI360, Finn Church Aid, IRC, JRS, Jusoor, Libraries Without Borders, NRC, People in Need, Plan International, Relief International (co-chair, Amy Parker), Save the Children (co-chair, Charlotte Bergin), War Child Holland, UNICEF, UNHCR, UNESCO-IIEP, World Vision. Coordinator: Natalie Brackett, INEE Standards and Practice Working Group (SPWG)
The Training Pack for Primary School Teachers in Crisis Contexts, published in March 2016, is intended to build basic teaching competencies for unqualified or under-qualified 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, French, and Arabic. Visit the TiCC pack webpage to learn more and download the files.
The Peer Coaching Pack complements 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. Visit the Peer Coaching pack webpage to learn more and download the files.
During 2018-2019 the TiCC is focusing on two overarching work streams:
Online Discussion: Teachers in Crisis Contexts Training Pack Implementation: The Teachers in Crisis Contexts Training Pack - Implementation Discussion Series (Oct-Dec 2016) is an online special discussion series hosted that seeks to demonstrate how the recently published Teachers in Crisis Contexts Training Pack is being and can be used and adapted in education in emergencies contexts.
Webinar: Teacher Professional Development in Crisis Contexts: INEE hosted a free webinar on 29 September 2016 addressing the critical issue of teacher professional development in crisis-affected contexts. The webinar brought together colleagues from across the world to discuss, question, and consider much needed improvements to teacher support and teacher training.
