IMPACT’S TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMMES

Taking Education Further

About

Impact Teachers has a genuine passion for education exampled by its well established Teacher Training Programme which serves to provide educational opportunities to teachers in countries around the world. We do this by using our extensive education based networks to build teams of teachers who travel to countries such as Uganda, India, and Kenya to offer training programmes to local teachers.
This is an initiative that Impact Teachers proudly runs alongside our core business of education recruitment. It is a passion that has developed into a unique programme that sets us apart from all others in our industry.
Ultimately, this initiative is a professional development programme that compliments current practice, motivates participants, is effective, and has a legitimate view to sustainability of practice.

What are we trying to achieve?

From 2019 Impact Teachers will be partnering with Memusi Foundation to offer our Teacher Training Programme to primary schools in the district of Magadi, south of Nairobi, in Kenya.
Our goal here is to increase the educational opportunities for primary school students in Magadi by targeting student engagement to improve student grades.
This goal supports our efforts in targeting the 4 key areas below:
Increasing student grades
Increasing school enrolment
Increasing student attendance
Increasing numbers of students completing their primary education

How do we do this?

We utilise our specific expertise in education to work directly with local teachers and schools in Magadi focusing on teaching and learning, with specific reference to student engagement, to improve student grades. We know that this focus will improve the quality of education, and have a positive influence on the other 3 key areas.
We create a sustainable method to improve the quality of teaching and learning by using a wide range of proven strategies. These include seminars, modelling, lesson observation, and meaningful feedback designed to develop and inspire teachers. The strategies when adapted significantly improve student interest and engagement in lessons.

Project Funding

Since 2006, Impact has funded a series of community and education projects in India and Africa. From teacher dormitories to classrooms and latrines, the projects have enabled educators to develop sustainable, positive environments in the classroom and at home. We also commit to matching any fundraising efforts by our schools for these projects, and encourage involvement when possible. To receive further information about funding, please email programmes@impactteachers.com

How Does It All Work?

During a weeklong trip, volunteers observe lessons, offer lesson feedback, deliver training seminars, and both mentor and collaborate with local teachers in order to provide them with new strategies they can adapt to any lesson to bolster student engagement.

Am I eligible for a trip?

To be eligible for a trip, you must be a fully qualified teacher. The majority of the schools we work with are Primary level, so experience at this age group is beneficial but it is not essential.

When Do The Trips Take Place?

All trips take place during UK school holidays and last one week. The trips are run during February Half Term, May Half Term and during the first week of the summer holidays in July. We also encourage independent travel before and after (if possible) as it’s an incredible opportunity to explore a new culture!

How Much Does It Cost?

All you need to take care of are your flights, visa, travel insurance, and immunisations – Impact pays for your on-the-ground costs (accommodation, travel, food). We do ask you to make a small refundable deposit to begin the process of your application and to do some fundraising to help with some costs we incur.
