Teachers Learning Together

35,000 teachers across Kenya and Rwanda are currently taking part in an exciting new professional development programme, with the potential to impact the learning of over 2.6million learners.

Through two ambitious UK-aid funded initiatives, teachers have the opportunity to participate in school and cluster based communities of practice (CoPs) where, in collaboration with their colleagues, they take charge of their professional development agenda by sharing experiences and supporting each other to improve teaching practice.

Early signs have  been promising. We believe these two initiatives are a vital opportunity for the global education community to learn more about ‘what works’ at scale to improve quality teaching and learning.

In this report, we outline some of our early insights as we begin to analyse the findings from the baseline research phase in Rwanda.
