The Teachers Guild 

The Guild is a professional community that activates teachers’ creativity to solve the biggest challenges in education today. While learning and doing design thinking, teachers build their creative muscle and connect to diverse partner organizations who are committed to bringing their solutions to life. It’s an initiative run by a team of educators and designers from IDEO’s Design for Learning Studio and PLUSSED at Riverdale Country School.

Inspiring the future

Inspiring the Future is a free service that connects over 8,700 teachers from 4,600 state schools and colleges with over 23,000 volunteers who have pledged to give just one hour per year to speak to young people about their job, career and the education route they took.  Volunteers and schools are connected securely online, with volunteers receiving invites from local schools and colleges to see if they can attend events during the academic year.
