The Global Teachers Institute (GTI) is excited to be hosting its annual Axis Education Summit after the long break caused by the COVID-19 pandemic from Wednesday 13 to Thursday 14 July. We are looking forward to hosting our pre-service and in-service teachers, leaders in education, and all-important stakeholders at our Hybrid Axis Education Summit!

Tickets are R750 for attendance in-person at the HeronBridge Retreat Centre in Johannesburg, or R 250 for online attendance via Zoom. We also are offering students currently at University or College an online attendance at a special price of R 100.



The theme of the 2022 GTI Axis Education Summit is Revive, Refresh and Regenerate Education in the Post-Pandemic Era”.

The key question that will be addressed during the Summit is: How do we revive, refresh and regenerate the education system to adequately adjust to the learning demands of the post-pandemic 21st century era? This theme is a call for participants to debate, examine and create solutions to reinvigorate learning in the South African schooling system. The call to revive, refresh and regenerate education is also an invitation to develop short, medium and long term solutions to the challenges brought about by COVID-19 and other shocks that have caused damage to the schooling system in the country.

Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, our last in-person Axis Education Summit took place from 2 to 4 July 2019 at the University of Johannesburg’s Funda Ujabule Primary School, the theme was: connect + create = change. From that Summit, GTI released a series of 8 knowledge products aimed to equip educators to become active change agents in our schools, our communities, our country and the world at large.

We decided to focus our efforts into hosting a GTI Future Leaders Imbizo instead, with the Future Leaders Imbizo our aim was to provide opportunities for our student teachers, across all regions to collaborate and build relationships.
