Central to the success of TTISSA is the capacity to effectively engage with stakeholders at global, regional and national levels as well as to reinforce existing frameworks.
At the global level TTISSA is implemented within the framework of Education for All and the Millennium Development Goals.
At regional level it supports the realization of the African Union 2nd Decade for Education (specifically the teacher development component) and reflects the priorities of the Regional Economic Commissions.
At national level, TTISSA must align with national policies and Education Sector Plans and with the modalities of the support of development partners. Within the UNESCO National Education Sector Strategies (UNESS) process, TTISSA provides a framework for the analysis of teacher issues and the identification of areas of programmatic support.
The priority areas of TTISSA are addressed jointly by UNESCO Headquarters, the UNESCO Regional Office for Education in Africa (BREDA), the UNESCO International Institute for Capacity Building in Africa (IICBA) and UNESCO Field Offices.
BREDA, located in Dakar, supervises and coordinates implementation across the Region and plays a key role in advocacy at both regional and sub-regional levels.
IICBA, located in Addis Ababa, carries out specialized research and capacity development in the area of teacher education, distance education and ICTs in education; school leadership training workshops as well as research in key teacher issues and training, pedagogy, ICTs in education, HIV and AIDS and life skills education.
Field Offices are responsible for implementing and executing TTISSA in the country(ies) for which they are responsible. They work alongside the Government and other stakeholders to support country priorities.Back to top
