Our volunteer Teacher Training Programme enables teachers to use their skills and passion for education,
ensuring students everywhere have access to a quality education.
We connect teachers in the Impact community with schools in Uganda, Kenya and India, through our life
changing trips that have an impact on children around the world.
Our expert educators influence the practice skill of teachers in international communities, increasing engagement
and opportunities for children and schools around the world. Impact teachers upskill, support and develop
teachers in schools overseas.
The unique opportunity to spend time overseas and change lives of children around the world is transformational
for teachers, children and schools.
What is the impact?
Our overseas Teacher Training Programme enables passionate teachers to give back.
It has four key goals:
Increasing student grades
Increasing school enrolment
Increasing student attendance
Increasing numbers of students completing their primary education
Our educational expertise enables us to provide teachers to schools in Kenya, India and Uganda who make an
impact on children, teachers and schools. They work closely alongside and form relationships with local teachers
to improve teaching, student engagement, and student grades.
Our method uses a wide range of proven strategies including seminars, modelling, lesson observation, and
meaningful feedback designed to develop and inspire teachers. The strategies have been shown to significantly
improve student interest and engagement in lessons. All of which is underpinned by our key aim of changing lives
Ready to have an impact?
Interested in having an international impact? Here is what you need to know to start your journey.
What does it look like?
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.
When are the trips?
These transformational trips take place in 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!
Am I eligible for a trip?
To be eligible for a trip, you must be a fully qualified teacher. Most of the schools we work with are Primary level, so experience at this age group is beneficial but certainly not essential.
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 such as accommodation, travel, and food. We do ask you to make a small refundable deposit to begin the process of your application and support us with fundraising to help with some costs we incur.
