Teacher Training

Qualified teachers are another scarce resource in the highlands of Madagascar, so we've started our own two-year teacher training program for local people.

As well as learning pedagogy, our teachers have to learn two new languages, French and English, and become proficient in the use of computers to seek out resources. Our teachers-in-training spend time working with excellent mentors in all divisions of the school, and share in a daily meal and all training opportunities, allowing us to get to know their strengths and weaknesses, and the gifts they may bring to their colleagues and our school. 

Trainees make a commitment to work alongside our teachers in our schools, and we commit to mentoring them and monitoring their progress. We provide them with meals and a stipend while they're training with us. When their training is complete, they're eligible to work in local schools.
