This publication, a critical literature review and analytical framework, is part of the initial phase of
the development of UNESCO-IICBA’s Teacher Support and Motivation Framework (TSMF) for Africa. It also serves as a resource for African countries and contributes to
accelerating the development of sound teacher motivation policies across the continent.
Teachers are at the core of achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); in particular, teachers are central to meeting Goal 4: ‘Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.’ In fact, target 4.c, that aims to ‘substantially increase the supply of qualified teachers,’ simultaneously acknowledges the shortage of and demand for qualified educators.
One of the key questions that underscores these goals is
how can African countries facilitate the growth of well-motivated teachers with the mind-set, attitudes, competencies and conditions to provide quality education?
