About us

The School of Education, at the University of Birmingham, is active in pursuing and sharing knowledge through outstanding teaching and world-leading research and wishes to afford different provision in different places for learners and communities with different needs.

YTL Foundation is an education foundation established in Malaysia with the aim of building better societies through education and is active in providing leadership opportunities. YTL Foundation aims to empower individuals and communities to be catalysts of change to enrich and benefit society.

Our joint programme, Teachers for Educational Equity is designed to become a self-sustaining, ongoing programme. We believe that the three-year pilot phase will give us the evidence and momentum to create an internationally renowned programme, that is scalable to other countries that have a significant number of refugees. We have an opportunity, together, to make a major contribution to issues facing refugees globally. 

The University is excited to partner with the YTL Foundation to rollout this programme, as their expertise on the ground is invaluable and crucial to our success. 

Together, we have an incredible opportunity to create a step change in educational provision for refugees, not just in Malaysia but ultimately across the globe. We can, and will, transform lives, for this generation and the next.
