Regional networking cluster groups as well as thematic discussion groups provided plenty of opportunities for participants to network and to discuss topics such as Teacher Training and Development in Poorly Resourced Education Systems and Monitoring and Evaluation with Reference to Pupil and Teacher Outcomes.

Feedback has been very positive and appreciative of BFSS’s role as a proactive and forward thinking funder, see Report on BFSS Grants Workshop 25 November 2015.
