Africa Federation of Teaching Regulatory Authorities
AFTRA is an intergovernmental organisation comprising the national agencies regulating teaching in the 54 African countries. Inagurated on October 12, 2010 in Abuja Nigeria by the Ministers of Education of Nigeria and South Africa and with an initial fifteen countries as members, AFTRA has grown into a profound continental Federation that leads policy development and implementation for the professionalization of teaching in Africa. AFTRA is also a member of the global network called International Forum of Teaching Regulatory Authorities (IFTRA). Therefore, the impact of AFTRA is felt not only in Africa but also around the world.
In pursuit of its mandates, AFTRA further functions as member of other continental and global bodies on teachers including the African Union’s Continental Education Strategy for Africa (CESA 2016-2025) Teacher Development Cluster; and International Task Force on Teachers for Education 2030; and collaborates with UNESCO Regional offices, UNESCO-IICBA, Education International and others.
The national laws that established member organisations of AFTRA empower them to register and license teachers, set standards for pre-service and on-going teacher professional development, develop and implement teacher professional code of ethics and standards for teachers and school leaders, and work generally to promote the professional status of teachers. AFTRA therefore is working to translate these mandates to continental frameworks to facilitate exchange of best practices, teacher mobility, and quality teaching and learning throughout Africa for the actualisation of the Sustainable Development Goal 4 (Education) and CESA 2016-2025.
