ICET works to foster international cooperation for improving the quality of preparation of teachers, administrators and other education specialists through the development of national, regional and international networks. The International Policy Dialogue Fora of the International Taskforce on Teachers for Education 2030
and the UNESCO Participation Program represent two avenues for engagement and collaboration
International Policy Dialogue Fora
ICET is one of a select number of NGO's globally who are members of the International Taskforce on Teachers for Education 2030. Our membership allows us to participate in the International Policy Dialogue Fora of the International Taskforce on Teachers for Education 2030. The Policy Dialogue Fora
provides an opportunity for a Board member to meet his/her responsibility to contribute to policy development. The fora are designed to raise awareness among members and partners of the Teacher Task Force on crucial issues for the implementation of the Teacher Target in SDG 4 and Education 2030 agenda. The fora seek to have impact on country policies, reflections and debates.Organized annually to keep a strong connection between the members, it promotes participatory approaches, dialogue and exchange of experiences in evidence-based teacher policy formulation and implementation.
The fora offer a unique opportunity for the global community of teacher educators to come together to discuss and address teacher-related matters in different regions and socioeconomic contexts. By revisiting teacher issues and sharing experiences, these fora foster a collaboration that is more effective, communication and resource mobilization towards the achievement of the Teacher Target of the SDG 4 among TTF members.
Participation in the Policy Dialogue Forum by invitation only. ICET was invited to join the Teacher Taskforce and participate in the Policy Fora in 2016. Since then ICET Board Members have engaged in the following Policy Dialogue Forums
The UNESCO Participation Program
The UNESCO Participation Programme
provides an opportunity for a Board member to meet his/her responsibility to engage in resource development. The program functions as a vital complement to UNESCO’s regular activities by analysing, evaluating and facilitating the implementation of national, sub-regional, inter-regional and regional projects submitted by Member States and NGOs directly related to the activities of the Organization. Furthermore, it serves as a means employed by UNESCO to strengthen the partnership between the Organization and its Member States as well as between the Organization and Non-Governmental Organizations in official partnership with UNESCO. Thus the Participation Programme enhances the inclusive and generous spirit of UNESCO’s noble mission
