The following Glossary provides a selection of relevant educational terms included in in the Conceptual and Programmatic Framework of the Life Skills and Citizenship Education (LSCE) Initiative. 

The main objective of developing a Glossary for the LSCE Initiative is to support practitioners engaged in the field of learning and skills development in MENA with helpful definitions. These definitions, however, should not be considered as universally accepted standard terms, but rather as working references to be further contextualized and operationalized within the framework of the LSCE Initiative.
