Improving teacher quality: lessons learned from grantees of the partnership to strengthen innovation and practice in secondary education

High-quality teaching is central in creating an educational environment that supports learning for all. In designing, implementing, evaluating and scaling teacher training programs as a pathway to shaping education systems, design a cost-effective model that adopts a streamlined, appropriately sequenced approach to influencing how and/or what teachers teach. Shift towards a long-term focus to improving the effectiveness of the teaching force by being intentional about whom you train, leveraging both intrinsic and extrinsic motivators, and engaging both government and pre-service teacher training as key partners. These and other practical, cross-organizational learnings and concrete examples highlighted in the study offer concrete guidance that can be leveraged to strengthen the design, implementation, evaluation and scaling of interventions to improve the quality of teaching.
