About the Project
The Varkey Foundation believes that education frees people from poverty, and that the greatest impact on student outcomes can be achieved by improving teaching quality. The Varkey Foundation’s vision is for every child to benefit from a great teacher. To this end the Foundation have designed a suite of teacher training programmes, aimed at school principals and senior management team members, teachers, and government officials, is based on best-practice international teaching methods that build student-centered learning approaches into the classroom, whole-school leadership and management techniques, teacher self-efficacy and student/teacher performance/commitment. The Varkey Foundation Teacher Training Program has committed to train 250,000 teachers over the next 10 years for communities across the world. A creative approach to developing a learning community of professionals is a key success criterion for the program.
