INFORMATION ABOUT TEACHING WITH IMPACT

Tackling the learning crisis

Hundreds of millions of children are learning very little in school. In Sub-Saharan Africa, fewer than 7 % of students in late primary school are proficient in reading and fewer than 14 % in maths. (UNESCO, 2019, World Bank, 2018). This has huge negative implications. Education will not be a catalyst for development if children are not learning. Children who are already disadvantaged learn the least. Weak instructional practices as a result of low-quality teacher training are at the root of this crisis. Teachers are crucial, they function as role models for children, shape attitudes, build confidence and make learning fun. In some contexts, they are the only accessible sources of basic knowledge.

Improving teaching for better learning

Teaching with Impact is a teacher training programme for teachers of all subjects in primary education. By following Edukans’ Teaching with Impact programme, teachers develop and apply hands-on teaching skills which they can use in daily practice. Pupils of Teaching with Impact trained teachers achieve higher results, have better prospects to progress to secondary or tertiary education and become more motivated and self-confident. Teaching with Impact gives teachers practical tools to improve their practice right away including the unique and innovative ‘Correctbook’: sustainable learning materials for endless learning through continuous practice.

The proven benefits of Teaching with Impact

  • Teachers know how to become more effective and demonstrate this in their day-to-day teaching.
  • Improved learner and school achievements: higher learning outcomes, better pass rates, improved retention of pupils in education, and transition to next level education.
  • Sustainable and locally produced learning materials allow for endless learning through continuous practice.
