Global teachers get set for five weeks of rural African living

MORE than 60 UK teachers will spend five weeks living and teaching in a rural African school next year under the Global Teacher Millennium Award scheme. Speaking at the launch of next year's awards at the House of Commons this week, Bob Doe, editor of The TES, said: "The Global Teachers scheme is one of the most inspiring things I have seen in 30 years of writing about education.

"Last year 1,300 teachers who read about it in The TES responded. Those who went to Uganda, Ghana and South Africa made a real difference in the African schools they supported and found it of huge benefit to their own personal and professional development."
