Teacher Creativity Centre (TCC)
The Teacher Creativity Centre (TCC) is a Palestinian, non-profit, non-governmental organization, established in May 1995, by a group of teachers working in schools in the government, private and UNRWA schools.
Since its inception TCC has worked to ensure a peaceful and secure environment within schools. TCC’s goal is to eliminate violence from schools by means of encouraging human rights and civic education culture.
TCC has been in the forefront of organizations calling for the integration of civic education and human rights concepts into the entire school curriculum; not only at the Palestinian level but also at the wider Arab World Level.
TCC has successfully implemented a number of studies and training programs in the fields of human rights, democracy and civic education targeted at educators, especially teachers, in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
TCC works closely with the Palestinian Ministry of Education and Higher Education to deliver training programs to teachers, principals, supervisors, and senior managerial personnel at the Ministry.
In 1997 TCC became an active member of the Palestinian Educational Collective. In 2000, TCC joined the Palestinian Network of Non-governmental Organizations (PNGO) and as a founding member, became part of the steering committee of the Arab Civic Education Network (Civitas) in 2002.
