What is Mwabu Academy?

The Mwabu Academy provides specifically focused teacher support through initial training courses in using our product and devices, and continued professional development in teaching skills and best practice. We offer a complete set of standard and bespoke change management courses, as well as high-quality teacher mentoring, delivered through classroom observations and personalised feedback.


We are also building an intelligent interconnected online network of teachers, learners and parents to share good practice and experiences across borders.

Our Vision

Our vision is that learners across Africa will benefit from a high quality, engaging, modern and relevant education so they can drive forward the development of the continent. We support teachers by providing the techniques, resources and training to effect this change.

The Mwabu Academy is a centre of excellence for developing and supporting educators. Through the Academy and its services, teachers can be involved in a process of continued professional development enabling them to improve their classroom practices whilst using the full range of Mwabu resources and approaches.
