Professional learning communities (PLC) receive increasing attention as a method for effective teacher or school leader professional development (PD) in the Global South. For example, VVOB programmes in South Africa include PLC on climate change education as a way to educate and train teachers and school leaders on this topic. There is also a technical brief (VVOB, 2017) on PLC in education and its association with SDG4 (which can be found here).


By launching this call for proposals, we wish to attract researcher(s) or consultant(s) that can conduct a systematic literature review on PLC in low- and middle-income countries initiated in adult education or training, and/or among in-service teachers and school leaders.


Interested service providers are invited to inform VVOB (contact person: the latest on 5 March 2021 that they intend to submit a proposal. This is also the deadline to send questions about the ToR to VVOB. All answers will be sent to anyone who has expressed interest by 12 March 2021. Full proposals should be submitted no later than 29 March 2021.
