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.
(Programme concluded and no longer supported by the Trafigura Foundation)
Education is the passport to the future, as the saying goes. To nurture tomorrow’s talent, it is also important to cultivate good teachers. Teach Future China trains local educators in the rural Qiaojia county of the Yunnan province to build their capacity.
The organisation identifies the career development needs of local teachers through the county education bureau, connects them to suitable coaches and organises training sessions.
So far it has trained four outstanding university graduates who returned to their rural hometowns to become teachers. Among the over 700 teachers intensively supported by the organisation, one of the successful beneficiaries, Duan Shipin, won a nomination award as 2018 New Generation Teacher in Rural Education.
