We are passionate about improving learning outcomes for students - especially critical thinking and problem solving. Our job is to support teachers with professional development that is practical, relevant and affordable.
The need: Teachers report that most professional development opportunities are too passive and basically involve listening to a lecture.
Our solution: Our professional development programmes are facilitated by excellent teachers and involve regular practice with curriculum-aligned learning resources.
- The need: Most professional development is usually delivered in a large-group setting, making it often irrelevant to many teachers.
- Our solution: Our programmes involve collaborative learning in a group of 8 teachers, so the content can be tailored to meet individual needs.
- The need: High quality professional development programmes usually require a significant investment of time and money from the teacher/school.
- Our solution: Short 60-minute sessions every 2 weeks, get to know each other in-person, then learn online. No travel time, no cover costs, affordable price.
