To find out how you can expand on your innovative teaching toolbox, enroll now in our free, self-paced, online courses in Innovation and Mathematics, exclusively for Caribbean teachers.
These are self-paced, short online courses that require a time commitment ranging from 10 to 20 hours each.

The Innovation Basic and Jump Math courses provide synchronous sessions (available only in English), where you will have access to a dedicated specialized tutor and engage in peer-to-peer collaboration, which are proven to increase engagement and elevate your academic performance and content retention. Upon successfully completing all requirements for each individual course, you will receive a digital certificate of achievement from ProFuturo.
The objective of this training route is to contribute to the development of Innovation as a fundamental competence that enables the personal and professional success of teachers and students, from the perspective of adapting, adopting, creating, and sharing. This training route is composed of 4 course levels: Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, and Professional, each of which offers an individual digital certificate of achievement upon completion. We strongly encourage you to start at the Basic Level as it sets the foundation for the subsequent modules.
