Schoolinka aims to transform education in Africa by empowering teachers with quality professional development, leading to improved teaching practices and student outcomes. Through innovative AI-driven platforms, we are increasing access to education, enhancing teachers' skills, and fostering a culture of continuous learning, ultimately creating a skilled and motivated teaching workforce.

About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

According to a UNESCO Statistics report of 2019, it was stated that 1 out of 3 teachers in Africa lack training. It is an agreed fact that quality education begins with qualified teachers who deliver good lessons so that students can learn. However, the percentage of trained teachers has been steadily falling from 85% to 64% at the primary level and from 79% to 50% at the secondary level in 2017.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

​Schoolinka is an integrated online platform designed to offer training courses, certifications, and teaching resources for educators, while also providing a job board for teachers seeking opportunities in renowned schools worldwide. We help schools cut down their cost of teacher training by 90% through our dedicated learning platform. The platform hosts a comprehensive Learning Management System (LMS) for course delivery, as well as a job board for schools to post vacancies and manage the hiring process.​

We deploy artificial intelligence to identify the training needs of educators, suggest online courses hosted on our platform that will equip them with the required skills, and also help these educators access better-paying teaching jobs with our partner schools. Our solution is democratizing learning for educators, improving the quality of the school workforce in Africa, and thereby ensuring that students have access to better learning experiences.

How has it been spreading?

We have provided training to over 5,000 teachers and placed more than 120 of them in rewarding teaching jobs and tutoring opportunities. Our teachers are from Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Uganda. We have reached teachers through school and government partnerships, and teacher communities activations.
