Global Teacher Development Forum

In October 2018, the Global Teacher Development Forum, co-hosted by the Varkey Foundation, Institute for Teaching and Ambition School Leadership, brought together experts and educators to discuss how to build the capacity and expertise of the world’s teachers. 

The forum included a series of high-level activities and events, centred around a weekend symposium for a select group of the world’s leading teacher educators and teacher education academics, followed by a major conference held in London for an audience of around 500 teachers, school leaders, civil society, academics and policymakers from around the world. The forum focused on improving the expertise of teachers, both directly and through support for school leaders.
