Teachers tend to work in isolation and we can all use a little advice.
There’s great value for teachers seeking out colleagues and organizations to discover the latest tip, trick or pedagogy.
To help you connect, we’ve collected links to some of Africa’s teacher organizations and associations and present them here for your use.
If you feel that we’re missing an organization or would like to add your own, please contact us and we’ll be happy to add them to the list.
