INEE has recently launched a new Guidance Note for Teacher Wellbeing in Emergency Settings.
This publication is part of a larger project, funded by Education Cannot Wait, to develop a Teacher Wellbeing Toolkit in order to meet the needs of teachers in their local context.
The guidance note is aligned with the INEE Minimum Standards, and it puts the wellbeing of teachers at the center of response and recovery efforts in conflict and crisis affected settings. Not just because an investment in teachers is an investment in children and adolescents, but because, at this moment in history, teachers deserve our unparalleled attention as an end unto itself.
The recommendations contained in this tool set forth and define a benchmark for teacher wellbeing; a standard of care and recognition that every teacher – regardless of where they live and work – should expect from the government and humanitarian architecture and communities that support them.
This new guidance note is a free and open source and should be contextualized for use in alignment with local needs, norms, and values.
