Education for Syrian Refugees in Bekaa Region Lebanon

UNESCO is increasingly requested to provide an educational response in emergency and reconstruction settings. Being located in a region facing one of the biggest crises since WWII, UNESCO BEIRUT is in the process of developing expertise in this field in order to be able to provide prompt and relevant assistance. Towards this end the office is offering a wide range of services including:

· The training of national senior educational personnel and teaching staffs and institutions.

· Research and studies pertaining to educational policy-making, planning and administration.

· The dissemination of the results of its work among policy-makers, civil servants, research workers, administrators and representatives of educational cooperation agencies.

· Operational support to specific countries, as well as advisory services to agencies, based on requests.

Within this framework and in response to the Syrian crisis and the arrival flood of refugees to Lebanon, UNESCO HAWER is collaborating with KAYANI Foundation to provide training and technical services to education practitioners, students, and affected families in the region.



The programme is primarily designed for teachers who are responsible for students of elementary, intermediate and secondary schools learning in non-formal settings in the Bekaa. The programme targets education practitioners, teachers, administrators, social workers, and counselors.


This training programme aims to guiding education practitioners, facilitators and all other teachers in the context of the Syrian emergency setting to better respond to the needs of affected children and families. The training intends to equip education practitioners and teachers with necessary professional knowledge, attitudes and skills to enable them to effectively and confidently perform their duties. More specifically, it is expected that at the end of the training programme, teachers will be able to:

- Demonstrate understanding of Education in Emergencies.

- Understand how children learn under stress and respond to difficult situations.

- Manage the teaching and learning process and space under the specific conditions of emergencies.

- Use child-centered methodologies of teaching and learning.

- Demonstrate self-confidence and motivation in performing their duties.

- Assess students learning needs and use flexible modes of delivery and planning.

- Adapt and enrich the teaching content in core learning areas (Arabic, English, Maths and Science) to respond to students’ needs.
