The British Council and its partner the Ministry of Education are celebrating the first year of the “Teaching for Success, Tunisia” programme.
This programme, which is funded by the British Embassy in Tunis and was launched in October 2018 aims to strengthen the capacities of English language teachers in Tunisia.
This first anniversary is a moment of recognition of the efforts of the participants and the various stakeholders in the education sector and feedback on their achievements that have contributed to the success of this initial phase.
The event will take place on 29 October 2019 and will be marked by the presence of Louise De Sousa, Ambassador of the United Kingdom to Tunisia, Minister of Education, Hatem Ben Salem and Director of the British Council in Tunisia, Robert Ness.
During this first year, “Teaching for Success, Tunisia” presented nationwide training for approximately 2,600 primary school English language teachers, 55 teaching assistants, and 90 English language and computer inspectors.
The training, delivered by more than 50 international experts through several activities including a summer camp, had as its main objective to develop new skills and use new approaches in language teaching to young learners.
The “Teaching for Success, Tunisia” programme is designed to boost confidence and develop the skills required for more dynamic, active and above all student-centred teaching. The project offers teachers and their trainers the opportunity to develop professionally and acquire a variety of skills that will help them teach more effectively in the classroom.
At the end of its first year, the programme is already achieving its objectives through the active participation of more than 3,000 people, 75% of whom were women, from all over Tunisia, and activities took place in several cities including Tataouine, Kairouan, Siliana, Gabes, Sfax, Sousse, Nabeul, Korba and Tunis.
