Train the teacher Project

      Train the Teachers Project


In underdeveloped countries like Sierra- Leone, Ghana, Afghanistan where approximately 60% of public school teachers have never finished high school and 90% have never received any formal training.


Our multi-method teacher training approach utilizes a 5-step cycle that has proven to be effective in successfully preparing both experienced and new teachers to excel in the classroom.


  1. Computer Training - Basic to advance level

  2. Distance Learning qualifications – through our and partner organisations online education platforms.

  3. Seminars – that introduce teaching philosophies and methodologies.

  4. Modeling– observing experienced and highly-competent teachers in the classroom.

  5. Co-teaching – with EFA teacher trainers or experienced teachers in the classroom.

  6. Independent teaching – while being observed and evaluated by EFA teacher trainers.

  7. Development – led by our teacher trainers, establishing individual development plans and periodic coaching.

              EFA Foundation was one of the first organizations in Pakistan and Afghanistan to provide basic standards of teaching performance through distance learning that all teachers must consistently demonstrate if they are to successfully complete our rigorous program.

Because our teachers tend to be more knowledgeable and skilled (and as such, a great resource for students), EFA works hard to seek funds to offer these teachers stipends to compliment their salaries and provide them with on-going opportunities to learn new subjects and support their continuing education.
