 Nepalese context

Nepal’s Himalayan terrain makes much of the country rural making teacher development difficult. The 2015 earthquake further set back the education system and today 90% of students aren’t able to pass English and Maths. In this setting teacher training is both challenging and crucial.

Our objectives

Since 2013 we have worked with local educational organisations in and around the Kathmandu valley. By facilitating training through a combination of workshops, coaching and reflection we work to support teachers in Kathmandu and surrounding rural valleys.

Fellowship Overview

Volunteers Initiative Nepal (VIN)

Since 2005, VIN, a Nepalese NGO, has been working with local and international partners to empower marginalised communities through education, health care and disaster relief. With projects in the Kathmandu area, LRTT work to support VIN's work to improve the quality of teaching across 100+ low-cost private schools, both primary and secondary.

Understanding the Context

With opportunities to visit local schools, observe lessons, and talk to Nepalese teachers, the group will begin to build an understanding of the challenges of classroom teaching in Nepal. This context and learning will help the team shape the sessions they will deliver during the training conferences.

Delivering Conferences

The group will deliver teacher training, using group workshops, peer-observations, and micro-teaching to introduce and model a range of practical skills and strategies for Nepalese teachers to embed in their classrooms to improve engagement and increase learning.

Observations and Coaching

After the conferences, the team travel around schools to observe the teachers they trained in their classrooms. These observations are the basis for Fellows 1:1 coaching sessions with their teachers, and help to structure feedback and help Nepalese teachers build on the learning from the conferences.

Fellow Experience


Nepal 2016

Our Team Leaders led some great debriefs at the end of the day to critically analyse our sessions. These debrief resulted in enormous changes being made overnight to rapidly improve the quality of what we were delivering. The reflective culture they established was really important and very effective.


Nepal 2016

It was an incredibly month thanks to the combination of the amazing people involved who were all so energising and inspiring. It's re-energised my positivity and desire to teach.


Nepal 2016

I built fantastic working relationships with the Nepalese teachers and learnt so much from them. By the end of my time in Nepal, I felt I was able to successfully lead CPD. Since returning to my school I've delivered CPD on routines and AfL at my school.


Nepal 2016

Our Team Leaders were really committed to delivering the programme to the highest standard and I valued their approach in pushing us and always expecting the best from us all. I cannot imagine the programme would have been as successful as it was without their reflective and adaptable approach throughout.

    By working in close partnership with locally-led teacher development organisations and by taking a data-driven approach to our work, we are able to track teacher development to evaluate the impact of our training and continually improve our course.

    A professional and cultural exchange between teachers working in very different contexts, brought together by a passion for education.

    Build meaningful relationships with like-minded teachers, open to learn and share their experiences, and grow through a unique shared experience.

    "When there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved"
