Six reasons to become an LRTT Fellow this year

FELLOWSHIP

Join a team of like-minded teachers

LRTT Fellowships bring great teachers together to share their knowledge and skills with educators who often get very limited teacher training and professional support. Our Fellows come from all over the world, including the UK, US, Australia and New Zealand. As an LRTT Fellow, you’ll be part of a team of 25 teachers sharing a transformational experience.

PASSION

Reignite your passion for teaching

Teachers who join LRTT bring a more global understanding of education back to their classrooms. As a Fellow, you'll work closely with a small group of teachers leading them through a cycle of instructional coaching aimed at promoting mastery of classroom strategies. This humbling experience is a chance to build authentic relationships helps and challenges us to reflect on ‘what makes a great teacher’.

IMPACT

Make sustainable positive change

Our success as an organisation hinges on supporting sustainable, long-lasting improvements in education. Rather than teaching children, LRTT Fellows facilitate globally-informed and contextually relevant face-to-face teacher development programmes that up-skill and empower teachers to unlock learning in their classrooms.

GROWTH

Grow professionally and personally

There’s a commonality between every teacher that becomes an LRTT Fellow; the desire to be the best teacher they can be. Stepping out of your comfort zone and challenging yourself is one of the most effective ways to grow as an educator. Because our Fellowships bring teachers together across contexts, they are both a skill-sharing opportunity and a cultural exchange.

PROGRESSION

Invest in yourself to accelerate your career

You'll build game-changing leadership skills in a supportive and new environment. Many of our Fellows tell us how their experience on an LRTT Fellowship gave them the skills and confidence they needed to take on senior roles in their schools back home. Many Fellows go on to join more Fellowships, either as return Fellows, senior Fellows or Team Leaders.

INSPIRING TEACHERS




As our Fellows spread the word, our movement is growing

Bryony

LRTT Uganda

The experience was amazing. It was great to be able to immerse myself in a completely different culture and see how schools operate in a totally different context to what we are used to. Visiting somewhere so rural meant that we really experienced Uganda properly.

Mona

LRTT India

The LRTT fellowship experience was one of my proudest moments in my teaching career. Just something simple as taking a flight and living with people I didn't know was all part of the experience. It also allowed me to meet like-minded fellows and build new relationships and come out stronger as a teacher.

Gemma

LRTT Ghana

Taking part in a second fellowship I feel I was able to offer a lot more knowledge about what successful training sessions looked like and I was able to guide others to think about how.

Aman

LRTT India

Having completed the fellowship previously, I feel more passionate about reducing educational disadvantage and I feel like a team leader next year I will be able to have a greater impact for this mission. In Pune schools, I saw first hand the impact the Fellows are having and this should continue.

Jessica

LRTT Belize

After a tough year of teaching, I feel as though I am coming back to as a different person. Working together with in-country teachers we shared our experiences to grow together as educators. This is an experience I could not have gotten anywhere else, and I am excited to be back this school year with a whole new outlook and approach to teaching.

Sam

LRTT Tanzania

Without doubt, LRTT is my most valuable CPD to date. It's developed me as a teacher and a leader and I have every intention of staying involved for many years to come.

Sally

LRTT Laos

This summer has been both life changing and life affirming for me. It has taught me that I am capable of things that I would never have guessed and reminded me that there are people out there in the world whose aspirations, vision and morality truly align with my own. I feel like I have found my tribe and have every intention of continuing to be involved in the LRTT.

Ramon

LRTT Malaysia

I've done things I never thought I would, experienced the real beauty of Malaysia, made some awesome new friends and hopefully been the catalyst for educational change elsewhere in the world. I've returned to work so much more positive and enthused for the profession, so all in all, the most incredible Summer ever!

Simon

LRTT Cambodia

It massively exceeded my expectations. I had a wonderful time in Cambodia. The combination of the gratification gained from seeing the impact of the training on the teachers, the varied excursions and the group of like-minded people I was with made it the best experience I have ever had.

Emma

LRTT Nepal

I built fantastic working relationships with the Nepalese teachers and learnt so much from them. By the end of my time in Nepal, I felt I was able to successfully lead CPD. Since returning to my school I've delivered CPD on routines and AfL at my school.

Andrew

LRTT Uganda

This was, by far, one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I had a great relationship with my lead teacher and all of the staff at the school. The Team Leaders were very responsive and supportive.

Kate

LRTT Tanzania

A once in a lifetime experience. I was absolutely thrilled and humbled to work so closely with local teachers who were so friendly and kind. I would definitely recommend LRTT and would love to continue to be a part of its mission as it's something I feel very strongly about.
