What We Do
Together, passionate teachers and educators from the UK and developing countries can provide sustainable improvements in education, helping schools provide local children with a better start in life.
Many schools in developing countries work tirelessly to educate the upcoming generation of their community, but struggle due to minimal funding, few resources and little or no training.
Education United has been set up to tackle the last of these issues. We select and prepare UK trained teachers to take on in-country placements to mentor and support teachers in developing countries.
According to a recent World Bank Report on education, more children have access to education now than ever before, but many children leave primary school in developing countries without even the most basic literacy and numeracy skills.
Through our professional mentor training, school-specific development plan, in-country mentor placements and continuous assessment we aim to continually develop teaching standards and learning outcomes. Our process intends to foster environments in which children can grow to be well educated, critical thinkers who effectively communicate and are able to apply their knowledge and skills in all walks of life.
Working together, passionate educators can unite to improve outcomes for the learners of developing countries today and in the future.
We seek to professionally develop teachers abroad in order to:
- Improve teaching standards in developing countries
- Provide children with the chance of a quality education
- Benefit generations of vulerable children
Teachers abroad will benefit from mentored teaching improvements and training, directly contributing to both an immediate impact on their school children and a sustainable and resiliant impact on future classroom generations.
UK trained teachers taking part will benefit from mentor training and an enhanced CPD in the form of leadership and mentoring experience in a challenging environment, which they can take home to use in their own schools and classrooms.
