Our volunteer Teacher Training Programme enables teachers to use their skills and passion for education,
ensuring students everywhere have access to a quality education.
We connect teachers in the Impact community with schools in Uganda, Kenya and India, through our life
changing trips that have an impact on children around the world.
Our expert educators influence the practice skill of teachers in international communities, increasing engagement
and opportunities for children and schools around the world. Impact teachers upskill, support and develop
teachers in schools overseas.
The unique opportunity to spend time overseas and change lives of children around the world is transformational
for teachers, children and schools.

What is the impact?
How Does It All Work?
During a weeklong trip, volunteers observe lessons, offer lesson feedback, deliver training seminars, and both mentor and collaborate with local teachers in order to provide them with new strategies they can adapt to any lesson to bolster student engagement.
When Do The Trips Take Place?
February Half Term, May Half Term and during the first week of the summer holidays in July. We also encourage independent travel before and after (if possible) as it’s an incredible opportunity to explore a new culture!
Am I Eligible For A Trip?
To be eligible for a trip, you must be a fully qualified teacher. The majority of the schools we work with are Primary level, so experience at this age group is beneficial but it is not essential.
How Much Does It Cost?
All you need to take care of are your flights, visa, travel insurance, and immunisations – Impact pays for your on-the-ground costs (accommodation, travel, food). We do ask you to make a small refundable deposit to begin the process of your application and to do some fundraising to help with some costs we incur.
WHAT ARE WE TRYING TO ACHIEVE?
From 2019 Impact Teachers has been partnering with Memusi Foundation to offer our Teacher Training Programme to primary schools in the district of Magadi, south of Nairobi, in Kenya.
Our goal here is to increase the educational opportunities for primary school students in Magadi by targeting student engagement to improve student grades.
This goal supports our efforts in targeting the 4 key areas below:
Increasing student grades
Increasing school enrolment
Increasing student attendance
Increasing numbers of students completing their primary education
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
We utilise our specific expertise in education to work directly with local teachers and schools in Magadi focusing on teaching and learning, with specific reference to student engagement, to improve student grades. We know that this focus will improve the quality of education, and have a positive influence on the other 3 key areas.
We create a sustainable method to improve the quality of teaching and learning by using a wide range of proven strategies. These include seminars, modelling, lesson observation, and meaningful feedback designed to develop and inspire teachers. The strategies when adapted significantly improve student interest and engagement in lessons.
