Peer Learning Activities 2017 - Sharing the Knowledge!

Today, ISSA launched a review of the Peer Learning Activities (PLAs) carried out with our member organizations last year. ISSA’s member organizations have diverse theoretical expertise in various areas of Early Childhood Development as well as practical experience in project implementation, advocacy or organizational development. We support and encourage the sharing of this knowledge across sectors and borders. In 2017, representatives of 38 member organizations from 22 countries attended 10 PLAs organized by other ISSA members.

Every year ISSA members share PLAs to build their capacity and deepen their knowledge of noteworthy practices on quality and equity in services for young children, and the professionalism of those who work in these services. This year's review shows that PLAs are a positive opportunity for the ISSA members to exchange experiences and to better understand how other countries approach early childhood education and care. Feedback from members has shown that PLAs are among the most valued benefits of their ISSA membership.

“It was a powerful experience to define key elements of success in our network. It reminded us where our roots are”, said Mateja Rezek of Step by Step Centre for Quality Education, Slovenia.

All Peer Learning Activities are financially supported by ISSA with financial or in-kind contributions from the members. If you would like to participate, consider joining as a member. If you would like to learn more about PLAs, contact us here.
