Bookmark and Share

Teachers TV, the digital channel and website for those in education, has announced its first international partnership to launch a Teachers TV service in Thailand.

The partnership, which comes as the channel celebrates its 5th anniversary in the UK, will see Teachers TV offering consultancy and training to the new Thai channel as well as selling in hundreds of its programmes which will be shown with Thai subtitles. The pilot channel is scheduled to start transmitting in April with a full channel and website launch in the autumn.

Andrew Bethell, Chief executive and creative director of Teachers TV, said: “The Teachers TV model is proving to be widely applicable to the world’s education workforce. As we celebrate five years here at home, I feel we’ve succeeded in showing that teacher training can be delivered through high quality video delivered across a range of digital platforms.

“Most excitingly, the interest does not stop with Thailand; we have a partnership with the Channel Thirteen in New York to develop a similar service and the proposal is currently being considered by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation."
