Story

I'm going to India this Summer with a team of teachers from all over the UK to take part in a teacher training programme to help deliver training that is much needed. The teachers in India often have much larger class sizes than we do in the UK and many don't have any formal training.

India has 440 million children. Whilst enrolment into primary schools is high, 65% of students leave school without basic literacy and numeracy skills and 1 in 4 children of school going age drop out of school. The need for a systematic approach to the issue of poor quality education in under resourced schools is becoming increasingly more important in India.

I feel that this is a great way to give back to the teaching profession and make a difference to the outcomes of children and teachers in less favourable circumstances than we have here in the UK. Your support and donations will help to fund the cost of the fellowship which enables the training to take place at no cost to the teachers in India. I am making a considerable personal contribution myself and also paying for all of the additional costs. This is an unpaid programme so every little bit will really help!
