We at TeachPitch are very excited to announce our partnership with the leading Chinese education company, OneWorld Education. Just like ourselves, OneWorld is a company that believes education can be improved through the global exchange and collaboration of teachers, students, ideas and (online) learning resources.

Through its Global Youth Ambassador Project (GYAP), the company creates student exchange programmes in a number of countries. With a global network of 500 Primary and Secondary schools between Great Britain, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and China, all GYAP member schools will be able to use the TeachPitch technology for the dissemination, organisation and discovery of the best online learning resources.


The partnership will strengthen the communication and continuous exchange of ideas between all its member schools, building a collaborative global network benefiting tens of thousands of students.


This is a very exciting time for TeachPitch and OneWorld, as we are truly creating a global network for schools, teachers and students. While working with GYAP schools, we have observed an evolution of great possibilities bringing students from the East and West closer together through the exchange of ideas and resources that our company is very happy to be a part of.


Roger Wang, president of OneWorld Education, stated: “The use of the TeachPitch software will allow all schools to save and manage their own digital resources, and discover new learning content through the TeachPitch library. Simultaneously, it will allow the schools to receive and share recommended and pre-selected learning resources amongst member schools.”


OneWorld Education in the UK is working with over 1000 Chinese students who are visiting a variety of schools in the UK. This year the GYAP programme is focusing on the south of the UK, as students will visit schools such as Bearwood Primary and Nursery School, Bishop Aldhelm’s Primary School, Allenbourn Middle School, Talbot Primary and Oakfield Academy.


During the summer holidays OneWorld is organising a summer camp for the GYAP network schools. British and Chinese students will work together and take part in some exciting activities held at Talbot Heath, a leading independent school in Dorset.

  • Is Learning Fun for You, Teacher?
    Is Learning Fun for You, Teacher?

    Over the weekend, my family of five went to an Orlando theme park, and I decided we should really enjoy ourselves by purchasing an Unlimited Quick Queue pass. It was so worth the money! We rode every ride in the park at least twice, but one ride required us to ride down a rapidly flowing river, which quenched us with water. It was incredible that my two-year-old was laughing as well. We rode the Infinity Falls ride four times in one day—BEST DAY EVER for FAMILY FUN in the Sun! The entire experience was epic, full of energizing emotions and, most importantly, lots of smiles. What made this ride so cool was that the whole family could experience it together, the motions were on point, and the water was the icing on the cake. It had been a while since I had that type of fun, and I will never forget it.
