The TaRL Approach
Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) is a holistic approach to improving foundational skills, and each component is essential to its success.
This page explains the components of the TaRL approach, which shifts the focus of education systems from schooling for all to learning for all. Each component works together to ensure that children’s learning is at the centre of every decision and action in the educational ecosystem.
TaRL is more than a teacher training programme. It works best when education actors throughout the system are aligned in promoting the goals of ensuring all children master foundational skills. Programme teams work closely with each other to ensure that TaRL is designed as a cohesive, well-monitored programme.

What are the TaRL Models?
Several TaRL models have been rigorously evaluated: after school, during school; in short bursts of activity or for an hour a day over a longer period; and with government teachers, volunteers or low-paid tutors as TaRL instructors.
