The Foundations of Teaching
Quality teaching is central to resolving the global learning crisis. This toolkit of foundational teaching competencies is designed for anyone involved in teacher professional development. The modules will help teachers develop the foundational skills they need to provide quality teaching.

Professional Development modules have been assigned to each foundational skill. Each module includes objectives, materials, key information to share, training activities, indicators of achievement, and key points on gender and inclusion (particularly disability and linguistic diversity). Importantly, they also contain ideas for self-study, collaborative learning and coaching:
