about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

Schools cannot exist without teachers, yet they are often last to receive support or investment in their classroom practice, resulting in poor learning outcomes for 80% of children in low income countries. By providing engaging and high-quality digital courses that include sound pedagogy, evidence-based strategies and activities, we facilitate regular access to quality professional development.

How does your innovation work in practice?

Teach2030’s flexibility ensures it can be used to meet the needs of both an individual teacher or a school, using any digital device. Through partnerships with in-country organisations (governments and NGOs), the programme is implemented by those working directly with schools and teachers themselves.

We believe in the ‘little and often’ approach to CPD by bringing training to the teachers. Sustained access to relevant CPD materials results in those small changes to teaching practice that have a profound effect on learning outcomes. Feedback from our users shows that 89% say courses are engaging and relevant to them and their setting.

Courses can be accessed on any device for a meaningful learning experience - even on a smartphone; the digital resource owned by many teachers, even those working in poorly resourced settings. A single course with compressed images and targeted videos uses less than 50MB, and is browser based rather than using an app to minimise technical challenges.

How has it been spreading?

Teach2030’s growth continues apace, with more than 10,000 teachers from over 40 countries accessing our courses in 2020 alone, and nearly 50% from sub-Saharan Africa. Course registration surveys show that many users are from word of mouth; confirmation of a desire and need of teachers in lower-income countries to develop their own practice - often as a result of the lack of provision of regular, quality and contextualised CPD in their schools. In addition, partnerships created in the last year include the delivery of Teach2030 to TVET teachers with UNIDO in Liberia; a pilot with the Teaching Council of Zambia to provide free access to Teach2030 for teachers in two districts; and reaching teachers in Ghana, Tanzania and South Africa through our collaboration with the NGO Warwick in Africa.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

Accessing Teach2030 is easy - visit teach2030.com, create an account, get started! Alternatively, contact us to see how we can support your organisation as we work towards our goal of supporting 150,000 teachers in lower-income countries by 2023. The fast rollout of our partnerships evidences how the simplicity of the Teach2030 platform means few barriers to delivery and its benefit is immediate.

HundrED Academy Review

This will work in my context especially with their ability to forge partnership with NGOs and national teaching councils.

IMPACT & SCALABILITY
Teach2030 offers digital professional development courses in short and bite-sized modules for teachers to apply in practice what they learn. Their partnerships with local organisations, governments and NGOs, are extremely important to provide relevant learning experiences for teachers taking into account the cultural particularities of the context.
