Developing a Handbook of good human resource practices in the teaching profession for the International Labour Organisation.
Contribution to the United Nations’ International Labour Organisation (ILO) Handbook to provide guidance on good HR practice for policy makers and education providers worldwide and ensure that teachers benefit from effective, equitable and supportive HR policy and practice.
Simone was asked by the ILO to research and write two modules of the Handbook, on Teacher Employment and Recruitment and on Salaries and Incentives respectively. In researching these modules, she drew on international standards and good practice guidelines and on recent evidence of how HR policy and practice impact on teachers’ well-being and performance in different countries.
The Handbook is considered a reference of good practice in HR policies and practice for education systems globally. It is written in an accessible style and designed for users from a wide variety of backgrounds and levels of education. It explicitly addresses challenges facing many education systems today, such as the difficulty of deploying and retaining teachers in remote rural areas, and shares examples of solutions and best practice from a wide range of countries and education systems.
