Good Policy and Practice: Pre-service Teacher Training

Sixth booklet in the series now available online

Good Policy and Practice: Pre-service Teacher Training

The Good Policy and Practice Series addresses key themes in UNESCO’s work on HIV and AIDS in the Education sector. Booklet six, on Pre-service Teacher Training, is the latest installment and highlights the key role that pre-service training plays in preparing teachers for HIV prevention and sexuality education when they take up their posts in the classroom.

In addition to improving teaching quality and efficacy, pre-service training increases teachers’ own knowledge base, enabling them to better protect themselves and their colleagues and families, thereby minimizing the impact of the epidemic on human capital in the education sector. Booklet 6 introduces:

  • Key issues, opportunities, and challenges in pre-service teacher training on HIV & AIDS;

  • An overview of institutional and programmatic responses to these issues;

  • Key factors that support effective responses at the national and international level;

  • Key issues to consider for developing or strengthening pre-service teacher training for HIV education;

  • Useful resources.

    Previous booklets in the series addressed (1) why HIV and AIDS are critical issues for the education sector; (2) issues affecting learners; (3) issues affecting educators; (4) the role of strategic partnerships; and (5) effective learning using illustrative examples.
