Teacher Training and Capacity Development Strategy: Burundi refugee response (August 2017)

Teachers in refugee contexts face formidable impediments in accessing pre-service preparation, in-service training, and continuous professional support. This lack of initial training and in-service professional development (PD) results in instruction that is routine and ineffective. This, in turn, results in inadequate teaching approaches like limited engagement of learners and overall insufficient educational delivery. As such, this strategy recognizes that there are real challenges facing teacher education in the refugee camps. It is with this in mind that this strategy recognizes that having a harmonized approach to building teachers capacity is only one step in this difficult reform process of improving teacher’s capacities. Therefore, this document serves as a guideline which will be used by all education partners involved in teacher training and professional development within the refugee response.
