Job Summary

Teacher Trainers will deliver quality English language teaching and methodology training for primary-level teachers working in Bangladeshi government primary schools in order to develop their English teaching skills and knowledge and their English proficiency as part of the Training of Master Trainers in English (TMTE) project.

This involves developing a cadre of 2,020 Master Trainers supporting other primary teachers across the country to improve their English language and teaching skills.

Details of Position

Duration: 4 months

The Ministry of Primary and Mass Education (MoPME) and Directorate of Primary Education (DPE) in Bangladesh have undertaken a major new sector-wide reform programme called the Primary Education Development Programme (PEDP4). One of the quality initiatives under PEDP4 aims to upgrade the English language proficiency and teaching skills of 130,000 teachers of English at primary level throughout Bangladesh.

The Training of Master Trainers in English (TMTE) project is the result of a realisation by MoPME that the level of primary teachers' English and the quality of English teaching in Bangladesh primary schools are not of sufficiently high standard to produce a workforce capable of serving the needs of national development.

To support this ambition, the British Council has been requested by MoPME to create a pool of Master Trainers from their existing staff through a cycle of training. The focus will be on creating a cadre of Master Trainers who will be proficient and skilled in English, have a clear understanding of effective teaching practice at primary level, and the skills and knowledge necessary to support the development of English teachers in primary schools. Ultimately, this cohort of Master Trainers will contribute to addressing the problem of inadequate English language skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking and presentation) and understanding of effective language teaching practices among teachers, and therefore indirectly support the learning of their students.

The basic requirements for this position will include, supporting British Councils global English strategy via the TMTE project by:
- Delivering quality face-to-face training to allocated groups of primary teachers
- Enhancing British Councils reputation as a world authority in ELT
- Continuing professional development and sharing of best practices

How to apply:
To apply, please send 1) a cover letter, 2) an up-to-date curriculum vitae (CV).

Please mark in the subject line "Application for TMTE Teacher Trainer."
