The Syrian conflict, now entering its eighth year, continues to cause large-scale displacement in the region, resulting in substantial disruptions in vital social sectors in the neighbouring countries which host the fleeing Syrian civilians. There is a dire need of capacity building for creating learning, inclusive and peaceful environments to welcome and encourage Syrian children to feel included, enrol in schools and to improve their educational retention.

Teachers in general and particularly those who teach in schools with significant number of Syrian children face challenges of how to deal appropriately deal with them in a classroom environment.

Responding to this need, UNESCO has developed a self-learning teachers’ kits consisting of five booklets on psychosocial Support (PSS) targeting teachers working children impacted by conflict and emergency situations.

UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in the Arab States proposes an induction workshop on Psychological Support: Teacher Kit in Emergency situation in the Arab States.

The workshop will include between 25 teachers (10 from Syria and 15 from Lebanon including UNRWA teachers).
