UNIVERSITY OF NAIROBI
The Diploma in Teacher EiE is designed to equip student teachers with the theoretical and practical skills necessary to become professional teachers. Apart from equipping them with the knowledge and understanding of the teaching profession, the programme will equip them with skills to carry out teaching in complex emergencies and different social-cultural contexts.

- the INEE Minimum Standards for Education in Emergencies particularly as they relate to access, community engagement, gender and disability;
- Guidelines on social protection (do no harm) and social inclusion (leave no one behind), classroom safety and classroom hygiene;
- Accessibility and mainstreaming guidelines to cater to students from refugee populations who live at a distance;
- Protection requirements and recognition of prior learning guidelines.
