Teach future China, investing in education, China

Teach Future China aims to cultivate potential leaders by improving rural education in China through training and support for outstanding young teachers working in schools in the countryside.

The Teach Future China project, supported by the Trafigura Foundation, includes the provision of a two-year programme for future educators, though it is not just newly graduated teachers who are benefiting. In Yunnan province in May 2017, 200 schoolmasters from rural areas underwent a school management training course, while in those same areas in October, 80 art teachers attended a course on inspiring children’s curiosity and creativity with limited resources. In the same month, 20 Chinese and mathematics teachers underwent a course on improving their classroom skills.
