The Department for International Development is committed to promoting evidence-based approaches to teacher training. This is also part of our Manifesto pledge to ensure that all girls around the world receive 12 years of quality education.

In all cases we conduct risk assessments and spot checks of teacher training content and assess the risk of contentious materials. Further monitoring is determined on a programme basis depending on the country context, the extent of UKAid funding and the training provider. This can include visits to teacher training sessions and independent reviews of training materials conducted by third parties.
