Education Development Trust will soon be implementing the FCDO funded Teacher Effectiveness and Equitable Access for all Children (TEACH) Programme in Zimbabwe. This new 5-year programme aims to create a strengthened and more sustainable national education system that is improving the quality of teaching and equitable access for all. There are three main objectives:
Improved equitable access in primary and secondary schools – greater participation, retention and attainment of the poorest children, marginalised girls and children with disabilities.
Improved quality of teaching – The quality of teaching is a central component to improving learning outcomes for all children, including the most marginalised. The TEACH programme will improve the capacity of primary and secondary teachers in Zimbabwe to deliver high-quality education using evidence-based targeted in-service teacher training
A stronger, more sustainable national education system – To develop sustainable improvements, resources and training needs to be supported with wider system strengthening.
