School Partnerships

Engaging, developing and retaining teachers


Upskilling & empowering teachers to get all children learning.

Founded by teachers in 2011, LRTT is an award-winning organisation operating cross-border teacher training partnerships across Africa, Asia and the Caribbean.


Fellows improve as teachers and grow as leaders

Teachers who join our Fellowships are trained as instructional coaches and grow while delivering our training. Our impact data shows that as well as building new skills, teachers become more confident, motivated, committed to teaching, and less likely to leave teaching.

An innovative way to develop and value your teachers


Improve Classroom Practice

Head Teachers from our partner schools often comment on how much the LRTT experience has helped teachers develop their own teaching practice. Leading professional development to others builds a teacher’s resilience, flexibility and creativity.


Develop Emerging Leaders

For many teachers, an LRTT Fellowship is the most valuable leadership development training they will have ever participated in. Many Fellows return to their school with an increased sense of their own professional competence and go on to lead CPD in school.


Recognise & Reward

An LRTT Fellowship during a teachers holiday is a unique and innovative way to reward your teachers for exceptional contributions throughout the year. Not only that, for teachers to know that such opportunities are awarded for commitment, it's a great motivator throughout the year.


Build Staff Cohesion

Spending 3-4 weeks in a new educational context is an incredibly stimulating experience for any teacher, to do it alongside colleagues provides a unique opportunity for your teachers to build cohesion, trust and camaraderie during a time they'd ordinarily not be working.


Engage & Retain

Teachers return from an LRTT Fellowship feeling energised, reinvigorated, and more committed to remain in teaching. For schools, supporting teachers to participate has proven to be an effective way to engage aspirational teachers longer term.


Champion Global Learning

By building meaningful relationships with teachers and experiencing different educational contexts and new ways of thinking, teachers return to schools feeling connected to global education and enthusiastic about sharing their experiences.

What Fellows say


LRTT Rwanda

It’s given me a good understanding of the challenges facing Rwandan teachers especially with regard to the recent teaching language change from French to English. This will enrich my own teaching and allow me to share these experiences with my own students.


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.


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.


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!



The LRTT fellowship experience was one of my proudest moments in my teaching career. It allowed me to build new relationships with like-minded teachers and come out stronger as a teacher.



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.


LRTT Nepal

As a relatively new teacher, this experience has enriched my own teaching and given me so much confidence - I’m going to return to school and really hit the ground running. LRTT has been the most amazing start to my career.
