Welcome to the premiere of ‘Brighter Futures’, the podcast brought to you by Education Development Trust. Each month we’ll be bringing together an exciting panel of renowned experts to share their take on groundbreaking research in the education sector, and we’re kicking off with an engaging look at recent research on the Rwandan response to last year’s Covid challenges.
Joining host Tony McAleavy on this episode is Education Development Trust and Building Learning Foundations' Rwanda-based Leadership for Learning Lead, Jean-Pierre Mugiraneza, and Amy Bellinger, who is currently leading the Education Workforce Initiative (EWI) for the Education Commission.
We discuss the shifting paradigm in professional development, a growing need to formalise comms strategies between head teachers & parents/guardians, and how ‘Leaders of Learning’ in Rwanda are collaboratively upskilling fellow educators in their local area.
This episode covers:
Creating pathways for young people to bring career aspirations to life is an essential part of their educational journey, and one in which we’re seeing a positive shift.

If we consider the specific needs of genders in the delivery of education as we do with other factors such as disability, then the benefits of gender-responsive education can be felt by all.
In recent years there’s been a shift in how we nurture teachers at the beginning of their career journeys, so how has a ‘golden thread’ approach to training Early Career Teachers helped solve the teacher retention equation?
