JRS Teacher Formation Programme

The Center for Learning in Practice (CLIP) is partnered with Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) to develop a prototype course and implement a pilot project in refugee camps in and Kakuma, Kenya and other select contexts.

This course focuses on “Child Well-being and Protection” and is part of the Jesuit Refugee Service Teacher Formation Programme. Working from the Teachers in Crisis Context (TiCC) Training Pack and JRS curricular materials based on this TiCC Training Pack, the Center for Learning in Practice utilized the Sustainable Learning Framework to create an optimal blended learning experience for educators in displacement contexts.

Prioritizing Education

JRS dedicates itself to three areas of focus in its educational programming:

Teacher Development

Inspired by the Jesuit tradition of Ignatian pedagogy, JRS emphasizes the role of the teacher as a transformative educator who can provide more than just quality instruction. Teachers can create the kinds of inclusive environments where children feel safe to learn, reflect on their experiences, and develop their potential.

Enhancing Access to Secondary Education, with a focus on girls

Displaced children are at a disadvantage: fewer than 23% are able to access secondary education. Of this already small group, fewer than 30% are girls. JRS recognizes this disparity and offers focused programs that support girls as they progress throughout primary school and transition to secondary education.

Professional and Post-Secondary Education

JRS also offers programs that promote educational and professional goals for youth and adults. This can include language courses and professional skills training to promote sustainable livelihoods.

These three areas have now become enshrined as key priorities in our 2019-2023 Strategic Framework, and form the pillars of the Global Education Initiative, a campaign to include a further 100,000 refugees in JRS’s education programs, and to raise USD 35 million to support them.
