The AIMS Teacher Training Program (TTP) started in Rwanda in 2018 with the goal of improving the learning outcomes in mathematics and STEM for secondary school students.
Working in 14 districts, TTP adopted a transformative approach of putting teachers at the core of the program implementation. The uniqueness of AIMS TTP lies in connecting different parameters of the ecosystem in order to drive sustainable change. This is stressed by the program pillars:
- Training of teachers
- Providing learning materials resources and ICT support
- Outreach and public engagement
- Evidence generation for policy dialogue
In line with its 4 pillars, AIMS TTP has empowered over 4000 teachers since its inception, launched 14 fully-fledged smart classrooms, awarded 42 teachers during its teacher awards, reached more than 30,000 students and members of the public, and plays a paramount role in policy dialogues aiming at improving the learning and teaching of maths and sciences.
