8th March 2011 is International Women's Day. This year is the centenary International Women's Day; celebrating 100 years of women's achievements. This year's theme is Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathways to decent work for women.

TESSA is proud to be working to support women teachers and teacher educators across Africa during 2011.  In particular we are launching a new Saltire Scholarship scheme in Malawi which will provide a pathway into teaching for 500 women this year.

Happy International Women's Day!


Use the country finder (opposite) to access a range of materials in a variety of primary subject areas (life skills, literacy, numeracy, science and social studies & arts), together with secondary science.

The TESSA materials are all ‘Open Educational Resources’ (OERs) produced by African teachers and teacher educators. This means that these materials can be freely downloaded, adapted, translated and integrated with other materials in courses and programmes for teachers at no cost.
