Across the global network, hundreds of alumni of Teach For All partners are leading change as social entrepreneurs by developing new solutions to the causes and symptoms of inequality. To support their alumni leaders in designing and launching sustainable and scalable initiatives, many network partners are increasing their own understanding of and capacity to foster successful social innovations.
Last week, Teach First announced the winners of its annual Innovation Awards, which recognize and provide support to new and creative social enterprises addressing educational inequity in the U.K.
"For us what was really important is that this wasn't going to be something that Teach First's Social Innovation Unit was coming over to implement, but that this was about transferring the knowledge so that Ensena por Mexico can do it in their context and they can lead this in years to come." - Gina Cicerone, Senior Officer, Innovation Unit, Teach First (UK)
The final day of the 2016 Teach For All Global Conference began with the event’s annual “Network Breakthroughs” session, featuring innovations that were successfully pioneered by network partners this year.
