*LRTT is on a mission to improve the quality of education all over the world*
LRTT (Limited Resource Teacher Training) is a social enterprise founded in 2011 by teachers from the UK who identified a need for teachers in Uganda to have access to effective, practical teacher training. We now work in 11 countries across Africa, Asia and the Caribbean where we deliver teacher training programmes in limited resource contexts, where training opportunities for teachers are scarce. Over the school summer break, we send qualified teachers from all over the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand for month-long Fellowship programmes to provide instructional coaching and a mastery-based programme of professional development for local teachers.
Over 1700 teachers have now joined LRTT and together with our 16 partner organisations, we are helping to improve the quality of teaching for 80,000 children each day. Our goal is to support teachers to make sure every child in their classroom is learning and has access to a quality education. Our ambition is to grow our organisation to train 10,000 teachers and improve education for 1 million children over the coming five years.
*Join a global team of educators, innovators and change-makers*
We currently have three permanent LRTT staff members who are based out of the BizDojo in Christchurch, NZ, and we are excited to grow our NZ-based team. The rest of the LRTT team are spread across the UK, US, Argentina, Poland, India and Uganda, and you will have the opportunity to work remotely with them via our online channels and apps. This role is a great opportunity to be part of a growing social enterprise, made up of an awesome international team who share a common goal of improving the quality of education for children around the world.
