Funded by Dubai Cares, Train for Tomorrow (T4T) is a US$ 2 million remote teacher training project in Ghana’s Eastern Region.
The project trains school leaders to become Instructional Leaders first through face-to-face training, and then through a distance-learning cascade, made possible by a satellite link and solar-powered infrastructure.
Train for Tomorrow aims to improve teaching practice through regular interactive, activity-based training sessions, to develop teachers' pedagogical methods and subject knowledge; to create more positive classroom environments; and to support the development of a more accountable monitoring system of teaching quality.
The programme has impacted:
T4T set out to test a concept: could we transform the experiences of both pupils and teachers by raising the quality of classroom instruction? Results from an external evaluation suggests that we did.
Varkey Foundation trained teachers showed a statistically significant improvement in instructional performance following the Varkey Foundation’s intervention.
• Wave 1 teachers in our 40 Hub Schools improved their quality teaching assessment scores by 38%; and Wave 2 and Wave 3 teachers by a huge 137%.
