Review of ISSA’s 2016 Peer Learning Activities
Each year, ISSA’s supports and facilitates numerous Peer Learning Activities (PLAs) exclusively for our members. As a learning community, ISSA believes that providing this service is core to our values and beliefs. Working together to put high-quality and equitable Early Childcare Development (ECD) services at the heart of communities, schools and governments is fundamental to the work of ISSA and its members, and the annual Peer Learning Activities are a dynamic demonstration of this commitment. Over the years, ISSA members have benefitted from capacity building exercises, exploring networking opportunities, and developing their knowledge of best practices across national borders. When asked to rate PLAs, members say that they are among the greatest benefits of being a member of ISSA. Members defined these activities as:
- “long-lasting partnership building”
- “learning from your neighbor countries”
- “very relevant knowledge and directly applicable to our context”
In 2016, ISSA supported 11 Peer Learning Activities by 23 members in 20 countries. Advocacy, strategic planning, taking stock of positive changes, deeper on training in education and health services, are among the range of topics covered in the 2016 Peer Learning Activities.
