THEY’RE NOT TEACHERS
GDP-boosting agents of limitless possibility.
UWS employs and trains teachers from the local community, to work alongside teachers provided by the government. This approach ensures education is locally contextualised and strengthens links between communities and our schools.
Building local teaching capacity
Every year a child stays in education equates to a 9% uplift in future earnings. Our teacher training program improves learning experiences, so children stay in school longer and maximise their potential. Our aim is for our teachers to have the knowledge, skills, and values to deliver quality, inclusive education and to be engaged in their own professional development.
Over a 5-year period, our school development programme nurtures teaching talent and helps them build quality education practices into UWS schools.
Transforming the classroom experience
We believe that training programmes should have lasting impact on school leadership, environments, and student outcomes as well as teacher confidence, motivation and well-being. Our training programme is designed to give teachers the tools they need to deliver a positive, child-centred learning experience. Delivered via regional workshops and school-based training sessions, the programme covers everything from classroom management to student assessment, active (rather than rote-style) learning to child protection and safeguarding.
