What we do

We empower the entire education supply chain (heads of national and provincial departments of education, district directors, circuit managers, principals, middle managers, teachers, students, parents and each school community) to become fully engaged in simultaneously transforming the culture of their underperforming schools into cultures experienced at high performance schools.

As a high performance culture develops at each school, teachers are inspired to

  1. Join and commit to a crusade at their school to deliver quality education
  2. Become part of an academic team on a destination to transform their school and the lives of students
  3. Play a specific, indispensable role within the school team framework 
  4. Prepare and present lessons effectively .
  5. Seek and adopt new methodologies and technologies to upgrade their ability to provide quality education in their classroom.

As pride develops at each school and parents attend parenting skills training conducted by teachers in their local language, many parents play a greater role in talking up the importance of obtaining a good education,  ensuring daily homework completion, daily school attendance and persuading their children not to drop out of school. 

The Northern Cape Department of Education in South Africa reported that after teachers had trained parents at 109 schools that student marks and progression rates had increased significantly.

Our goal: By 2044 to have enabled a billion children to attend schools which operate as centres of excellence while being supported by a committed informed parent/carer.

How we work with Ministries of Education

BCF trains officials of national ministries of education to train district officials to transform every school into a centre of excellence. Thereafter, each ministry of education rolls out the Programme throughout its country at a speed it determines appropriate. BCF supports each ministry of education while it rolls out the Programme.

BCF offer to Philanthropists and Corporate Donors

BCF offers potential donors the flexibility to sponsor BCF programmes in any country, province, state or district of its choice.

BCF offers each donor assurance that it will obtain the best possible return on its investment. £900 will transform a school into a centre of excellence. Based on 300 children attending each school, an investment of only £3 will potentially transform the life of each child.

Why we do it

Despite billions of dollars being invested in hundreds of initiatives to improve educational outcomes there are still an estimated one million under-performing government schools around the world. Despite this massive investment, most under-performing government schools remain stubborn under-performers. No country has, until now, found a scalable solution to address this apparently insoluble problem.

Endemic poor education, especially in developing countries, has left billions of young people poorly educated, largely unemployable, angry and mobile. Many children still leave school barely able to read, count or write.

Clearly there is not time to train one school at a time. Not even one thousand schools simultaneously. It is necessary for each country to own a programme capable of sustainably turning every under-performing school into a centre of excellence within 5-7 years.

When Ministries of Education implement BCF programmes, they empower millions of the poorest children to become engineers, teachers, accountants, computer boffins, electricians, etc. all adding to their national economy and global intellectual capital.

BCF, to the best of our knowledge, is the first organisation to offer provenscalable, replicable, sustainable, cost-effective programmes capable of empowering ministries of education to transform every school in their country into a high performing centre of excellence and to mobilise the support of parents and the community.

BCF programmes promote social mobility and alleviate three global pandemics – poor educational outcomes at government schools, the breakdown of family cohesion, and family and gender-based violence.
