Recognizing the critical roles that teachers have in child development, this competency framework for ECCE teachers in the Pacific SIDS was developed as part of a wider UNESCO project that aims to contribute to the professionalization and capacity development of ECCE teachers. The framework was developed in a consultative and participatory manner, taking into consideration views and insights from ECCE teachers, researchers, and practitioners from across the Pacific SIDS. This document first provides a brief background, and discusses the purposes and intended audience for which the framework was developed (Section I). A succeeding section reflects on the regional ECCE landscape (Section II), before proceeding to a discussion of the ECCE teacher competency framework for the Pacific SIDS (Section III). Section IV suggests possible uses of the ECCE teacher competency framework; a final section concludes with areas for future action.
