About us

A brief introduction

The Golden Teacher was originally developed by OnLineTraining Ltd (OLT) following advice from UNESCO as part of our commitment to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, the successor to the Millennium Development Goals.

Initial funding was provided by OLT who continue to provide technical support. This next stage is currently led by Ben Clench on a voluntary basis. Ben has a background in international development and was instrumental in gaining advice and support from UNESCO.
