Teach For All’s first Latin American partner placed its first cohort in 2009. Today, more than 280 Enseña Chile teachers work in 11 of the country’s 16 regions, and almost 700 alumni are bringing their leadership, perspectives, and collaborative energy to all levels of education and society.
Enseña Chile alumni go on to work at every level of the system, including as the third-highest executive in the national ministry of education, and as the mayor and head of education in the country’s largest district. More than 30% of alumni are teaching, 5% are in positions of school leadership, and another 40% work in other education positions. Alumni have held roles within the last four national coalition governments, while others are founding and leading schools and leveraging the learnings of Enseña Chile to train thousands of other teachers through innovative teacher training programs. Launched by Enseña Chile teachers and alumni during the pandemic, Canales Enseña produces audio lessons for radio broadcast that now reach students in 60% of the country.
