What are the Strategic Support Units?


The Teacher Policy, as a key strand of the UNRWA Education Reform Strategy (2010-2015), seeks to professionalize the teaching force within UNRWA to improve the quality of teaching and learning in schools. A coherent support structure for teachers and schools is needed to achieve this. The Policy has therefore enacted three Strategic Support Units (SSUs) to enhance capacity at the Field level:

  • the Quality Assurance (QA) Unit;
  • the Assessment (AU) Unit; and
  • the Professional Development and Curriculum (PDC) Unit.

These Units will support the schools in creating a strategic vision that is underpinned by shared values in order to create a culture of improvement that ensures the delivery of quality, equitable and inclusive education to all Palestine refugees in the 21st Century.
