An LRTT Fellowship is a culminates in a three to five week in-country placement where Fellows and in-country teachers work together to design and deliver high quality professional development in alignment with the four foundations of our specially designed course - [mutual empowerment; collaboration and sharing; sustainability and; innovation].
