Time To Teach

Teacher absenteeism is one of the most troubling obstacles on the path toward universal learning in many African countries.

The Time to Teach (TTT) project is a multi-country research study seeking to collate and strengthen the evidence base on the determinants of teacher absenteeism by investigating the factors that influence teacher attendance in 20 sub-Saharan and Northern African countries:

The study provides practical recommendations for improving teacher attendance rates, aiming to assist the policy and programmatic work of national ministries of education and UNICEF country offices.

Established in 2017, the project is a collaboration between UNICEF Innocenti, UNICEF regional and country offices, national governments, local research partners, DFID, World Bank, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Mastercard Foundation.

2018 Results Report

Innocenti Publications

2019     21 Jun 2019
In 2018, significant gains were made in generating evidence to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged children, build organizational capacity to conduct and use quality, ethical research on children, and set a foundation as an important convening centre for expert consultation on next-generation ideas on children. 2018 marks the first year the UNICEF Office of Research - Innocenti is reporting on the progress of research under the new UNICEF Strategic Plan (2018-2021). This plan is the first to clearly delineate the role of research and evidence as one of the eight priority change strategies for children. This report therefore is an account of the first year of work to generate critical evidence to inform programmes, policies and advocacy for children and young people around the world
