ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
The Future Leaders Programme (FLP) is a teacher training program that provides school-based training,
mentoring, and independent professional development to pre-service and in-service teachers.
The programme is run by the Global Teachers Institute (GTI), a non-profit organisation based in South Africa
whose mission is to shift the way children are taught by transforming teacher education both in South Africa and
The programme seeks to develop a new generation of highly capable educators by immersing pre-service teachers full-time in schools. The program also seeks to provide in-service teachers with experiences to improve their own teaching practice, instructional leadership skills, and mentoring abilities.
- To increase the number of entrants into the teaching profession.
- To improve the retention of in-service teachers.
- To build relationships between student teachers and schools that can ultimately fast-track student teachers into positions within the school where they received training, thus addressing both issues of teacher shortage and teacher attrition.
- To provide teachers with the necessary tools and resources needed to make their teaching practice self-reflective and contextually relevant.
