We run mutually empowering, cross-border teacher development

Our 3-4 week long teacher fellowships bring teachers from economically developed countries to upskill and energise teaching communities in contexts where people live on less than $5 a day.

Global Partnerships, Empowering Impact.


Qualified Teachers

We’ve welcomed Fellows from over 30 countries worldwide. Whether a teacher is relatively new to teaching or they've been in education for 20 years, they've got something valuable to share.


Instructional Coaching

An LRTT Fellowship brings together teams of 15-30 teachers from around the world to co-design and lead 3-4 week long instructional coaching programmes that up-skill and empower in-country teachers.


Low Resource Contexts

Our programmes take place in 11 countries around the world. We work in partnership with locally led organisations to support teaching transformation in contexts where people live on less than $5 a day.


Teacher Summer Breaks

Our Fellowships coincide with school holidays. With start dates in January, June, July, and August, Fellowships are accessible to teachers from the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand.

Teaching is the single most important factor influencing learning in schools.
