Warwick in Africa on the BBC

The BBC has made a 30 minute documentary film for their Our World Series on BBC World and the News Channel. Entitled “Mission for Maths” the film shows our students’ incredible journey teaching in South Africa this summer. It showcases the extraordinary impact that Warwick in Africa is having on the lives of the local township learners and teachers as well as their schools.

Warwick in Africa aims to enhance the education of young people in Africa and it has been achieving significant improvements in the quality of teaching – since its start up in 2006 Warwick in Africa has now benefitted over 90,000 young Africans in South Africa, Tanzania and Ghana. The programme is also having a profound effect on the volunteers, increasing the proportion of them that decide to enter teaching in the UK.
