ePortfolios is a software company specialising in online solutions for the monitoring and evaluation of teacher’s professional growth and lifelong learning. The solution was originally designed and developed by founder Mohammed Saleem Latif during teacher training at Liverpool Hope University in 2008 and now incorporates the Commonwealth Professional Standards Framework (PSF) – designed by the Commonwealth Secretariat in 2011 to improve teaching quality across the Commonwealth .

The ePortfolios solution enhances pre-service, in-service and continuing professional development of teachers, assisting with reflection and self-assessment of their competencies. It is also an ideal tool for University Tutors and School Mentors to monitor, evaluate and assess teachers’ professional growth.

Beginning with Singapore, the company is now targeting its service at the approximately 20 million teachers across the 52 nations of the Commonwealth which it believes would benefit from the product, suggesting massive growth potential.

We look forward to supporting ePortfolios to leverage this potential, helping in the process to implement the Commonwealth PSF around the globe.
