According to the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, Sub-Saharan Africa will account for two-thirds (approximately 6.2 million) of the new teachers needed globally by 2030, this number does not account for the number of teachers required to replace retired teachers. Therefore, there is a current and projected shortage of quality African teachers. As the school-age population expands in Africa the need to upskill incoming and current teachers is pivotal to Africas human capital development.
As part of our Teacher Professional Development program and in line with the United Nations SDG indicator 4.c.1 of increasing the supply of qualified teachers, our Chief Eduction Officer (CEO) launchpad upskills African Secondary School principals (heads) and teachers to imbue a 21st century education mind-set and culture across their institutions that can identify and nurture young African talent.
Teachers develop a changed mindset and culture with regards to education, technology and global issues.
Teachers develop an understanding of classroom management strategies that align to 21st Century education practices.
Teachers develop financial literacy and entrepreneurial skills that enable the creation of innovations for solving real-life problems locally and globally.
Teachers develop a hands on understanding of project based teaching and learning methodologies to enhance applied learning in line with their national curriculum.
