Investing in quality pre-service teacher education or initial teacher education (ITE) will be key to building more resilient education systems post COVID-19. In addition, better preparing teachers for the classroom including innovation and problem solving to manage complex unforeseen situations is necessary. Likewise, investing in continuing professional development (CPD) and in-service education and training (INSET) to upskill under- or unqualified teachers will be increasingly critical to mitigate capacity weaknesses as well as ensure that working teachers are included in a system-wide reform of teacher education so that all teachers have the knowkedge and skills necessary to ensure no one is left behind.
