British Council teachers' training program

British Council to train 20,000 teachers
Islamabad, Jan 09: British Council is all set to train around 20,000 employees from government sector in the field of education, Head of Programmes, British Council, Nabeel Alvi said.

He said that English for Teaching: Teaching for English (ETTE) aimed to train 20,000 government school teachers across Pakistan to improve their teaching skills in classrooms during the next three years.

"We are determined to achieve the desired target and have devised a comprehensive mechanism in this regard. Provincial and Federal Educational Ministries are playing active role to assist us," he added.

Alvi mentioned that the British Council had also planned to expand the vision of ETTE. "Ten resource centres with all necessary facilities will be established across the country in this connection.

The venues would be provided by Ministries of Education in all four provinces while British Council will arrange reading material and other facilities from the UK, for which we have allocated Rs 3 million," he further said.

These resource centres would provide teachers an opportunity of self-learning through the best quality material available from the UK and would be operational before the end of March 2009, claimed Alvi.

Replying to a query regarding the expansion of the project on global level, the Head of Programmes said, "The ETTE has been started in the Central and South Asia regions including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, and is particularly devised for those teachers who haven't yet been benefited from any training or development opportunity."

"The aim is to build the capacity of government school teachers who have not yet been benefited through any training to prepare them for a positive social change. This will be done by improving their skills and performance as well as developing leadership and advocacy skills to prepare a better youth from our schools," Alvi maintained.

It is worth mentioning that thirty public sector teachers from Islamabad, Peshawar, Mardan, Nowshehra, Fata, Karachi, Hyderabad, Sukkur, Tando Allahyar, Naudero, Bahawalpur, Gujrat, Jhang and Muzaffargarh received eight-day resident training ended recently in Islamabad. "This training was designed to improve participants' performance in the classrooms by enhancing their ability to use English language in basic teaching methodology and teaching English language through activity based learning," Alvi concluded.
