The 2nd Annual Education Innovation Africa focuses on facilitating innovative partnerships that build sustainable and impactful education programmes across Sub Saharan Africa.

Alternative education models such as informal private schools, online learning platforms, skills-based programmes and alternative delivery models are contributing to the reach of education across Africa. However, sustainable finance and investment are required to increase the efficacy, reach and impact of these programmes. Under this year’s theme ’Delivering Impact’, the event will unite key education leaders at Ministries, Educators, Programmes and Edtech companies, together with Capital Providers at PE, VC, Impact, Development Banks and Corporate Programmes to find new partnerships and models that will provide sustainable and impactful education programmes across Sub-Saharan Africa.

UNESCO reports a global shortage of trained teachers and states that it will be impossible to educate all children by 2030. This is more so evident in Sub-Sahara Africa where there is a shortage of trained teachers in the facilities that are operating now. What steps are being taken to prepare for the large number of qualified teachers needed now and in the future? What are the barriers to enter the profession and who is addressing these to make it more accessible? With government traditionally leading teacher training, how can teacher training become a viable private sector lead business?
