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 globally.


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.
