What we do

Cross-border Teacher Development

OUR MISSION

To get every child learning

Every child has the right to quality education and teaching is the single biggest factor influencing learning in schools.

We run teacher development programmes in low-resource contexts that equip and empower teachers to use evidence-based approaches in their classrooms every day.

Principles of our programmes

More with less

Resourceful by design

As teachers, we are our own and each others best resource. By promoting a culture of collaboration and peer-support in schools and by working closely with teachers to develop a greater sense of agency, we're empowering teachers with the skills and motivation to achieve more with less.

Energising experiences

Energising experiences

We've seen the positive and lasting impact bringing teachers with a diverse range of skills and experience together can have on each of their own self worth and value as an educator. We're intentional about designing our programmes to to promoting a greater sense of autonomy and agency amongst teachers.

Learn by doing

Learning by doing

If a teacher has practiced a strategy, they're more likely to embed such behaviours into their day-to-day teaching and consistently use effective teaching strategies in their classrooms. We combine purposeful practice and instructional coaching to help teachers achieve their development goals.

Learn together

Learning from each other

Our programmes focus on collaboration and sharing of evidence based approaches, sharing experience, knowledge, and skills.

The best way to consolidate your learning is by teaching others.

Local & Global

Locally led, Globally Informed

We see our role as curator, by bringing together the insights of locally led partners and evidence based best practice from organisations around the world to ensure our interventions are both locally led and globally informed.

OUR PROGRAMMES

An innovative new approach to teacher development

We mobilize teachers from the UK, US, and Australia to become LRTT Fellows and facilitate our teacher development programs, operated in partnership with local organizations in low resource contexts.

We work with schools for 3 years, most intensively over summer, supporting schools at three levels; headteacher, lead teacher, and classroom teacher.

Our development programs combine workshops and instructional coaching to help teachers and school leaders to achieve their goals.

OUR TRAINING

Evidence-Based Teaching

Our training model takes a whole school approach in developing a culture of continual teacher development to help teachers build the agency to consistently and effectively use evidence-based classroom practices in their classrooms and engage in peer-to-peer development.

Using an instructional coaching model, Fellows work in small groups to co-design and a cycle of workshops, practice, observations, and feedback aimed at supporting teachers to develop mastery in a range of evidence-based teaching strategies.
