INEE launches a Guidance Note for Teacher Wellbeing in Emergency Settings

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.

Call for Articles – Enabling Education Review – Issue 11 (Deadline 30 June 2022)

The COVID-19 pandemic turned education upside down during much of 2020 and 2021. Schools have reopened in most places, but our education systems will never be the same again. We all experienced not just disruption and challenges but innovations and achievements that can shape the future of education for the better.

The theme for the 2022 edition of Enabling Education Review will be:

 “Inclusion in the new normal”

The deadline for submitting first drafts of articles is 30 June 2022. Details of suggested topics and how to submit articles are provided below.

Contact info@eenet.org.uk with any questions and your submissions.

We want to share your experiences of transitions back into school, what the situation is like in the ‘new normal’, and what we have learned that could help us rebuild education systems better and more inclusively. For example:

  • What has been done to support learners transitioning back into schools?
  • How have approaches to teaching and learning changed because of the pandemic?
  • As a teacher, what did you do to reach and support all your learners when schools reopened? What challenges and opportunities have you experienced? Who has helped you?
  • How have adaptations to the new normal been financed and managed, and by whom?
  • As a parent/caregiver/learner, how have you advocated at the local or national level for approaches to education to be more inclusive after schools re-opened?
  • For learners who were already learning at home before the pandemic, how has their home learning been affected (positively or negatively) by the changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic?
  • How has the pandemic affected the mental and physical well-being of learners, parents, families, and teachers? What has been done to support them?
  • What lessons have we learned that we could use to improve the design and inclusivity of education systems long term?
