Pan-African Centres for Innovative Teaching and Learning

These centres address key themes in secondary education that are relevant across the continent, catalyzing improvements in teaching and learning through three core functions:

  • Foster and support innovation and experimentation;
  • Share best practices and advance research; and
  • Engage and convene multiple stakeholders at all levels to encourage policy change and implementation of new approaches.

Secondary education is the time when youth acquire the skills and knowledge they need to be productive and effective in obtaining secure work and income opportunities. Leaders in Teaching mobilizes and supports teachers and leaders who are at the front lines of education, and prepares young people for meaningful employment.
