Teacher and Administrator Professional Development

Sub-Saharan Africa faces an ever constant massive, prolong, and growing shortage of quality teachers, while many administrators are not well prepared to be instructional leaders.


CPHDA delivers effective, hands-on training and support to large numbers of teachers and administrators; we have been working with Ministries of Education (MoE) to train teachers and administrators. Our professional development programs are intensive, ongoing, connected to practice, and sustainably embedded within our partners’ education systems. We use various technologies to reach difficult-to-reach places, improve cost effectiveness, and provide more constant support than is practical using conventional means.


We empower head teachers, supervisors, and inspectors to serve as mentors who encourage teachers to apply newly learned techniques. We help teachers change their classroom practice to support deeper, more active learning. CPHDA’s trained educators perform better than their peers and move steadily upwards on scales of outstanding practice.
