British Council Nepal aims to promote classroom-based research to benefit the teaching and learning across the country. The British Council Nepal Action Research Mentoring Scheme (BC-ARMS) will provide small research awards for 10 mentors to facilitate this. These mentors will work with a group of 10 teachers to navigate classroom-based research projects in their local contexts.


Duration June-December 2019
Closing date Tuesday 30 April 2019

Role overview

Teachers will need to conduct research on any one of the following prescribed themes of enquiry: Assessing learning, Using Multilingual Approaches, Integrating ICT, Developing 21st-century skills and Inclusive Teaching and Learning.

The Super Mentor will facilitate and coordinate the Nepal-based mentor group by conducting a series of webinars to ensure alignment of approach to mentoring and the action research process.  At the halfway point in the scheme  a virtual meeting will be organised between the mentors and the coordinator to check progress. Various one-to-one calls with the mentors will also be conducted throughout the project period. At the end of the data collection period the coordinator is expected to offer support and guidance to the mentors as they collate their experiences and findings to present in a public forum. On completion of the scheme, the coordinator will produce a report on the project in terms of its outputs, successes and challenges.

The Super Mentor’s  roles will, therefore, include the following activities:

  • participating and contributing to the mentors’ induction into the scheme 
  • delivering mentoring activities/webinars to support the needs of the group
  • conducting monthly Skype meetings with the mentors 
  • setting the agenda and delivering sessions for the mid-term virtual meeting
  • offering guidance and support to the mentors in their collation of findings and experiences
  • submitting a report at the end of the Scheme.
