We recruit, train and develop teachers from within local communities to work alongside government-allocated teachers. Doing so provides new job opportunities and ensures that the education UWS provides is relevant to local contexts.  

This is particularly valuable in communities which do not speak the national language. Employing local teachers who speak the children's mother tongue protects indigenous cultures and improves learning. 

All the teachers we work with receive ongoing training and professional development, to ensure they are equipped to deliver a high quality, child-centred education.
