A partnership between the British Council Nepal and Waling Municipality, Syangja is based around whole school development with strengthened school policies and a committed workforce both within the schools and in local education offices.  

This capacity building and school improvement project will work with teachers to make them equipped and better able to deliver transferable skills and global learning effectively in their classrooms. 

The project aims to develop a cadre of effective trainers with the local government committing to use them for the continuous support of teachers. The British Council will also work with students to better prepare them to live and work in a global economy with the knowledge, skills and attitudes to take action to tackle local and global issues and achieve the SDGs. 

Focus areas

  1. School Leadership: providing face to face training and supporting 40 headteachers to strengthen accountability, teaching and learning in their schools.
  2. Continuing Professional Development for teachers: providing supportive teacher development opportunities for 240 teachers through training, coaching, self-study and peer-mentoring to improve their knowledge and skills in English, ICT, Core Skills and communicative teaching methodology.  
  3. Active student engagement in projects and clubs: implementing projects and in-school clubs which allow over 15000 students to apply English skills and Core Skills to real-life problems and engage in relevant community social action projects.   
  4. Assessment and accountability mechanisms: supporting headteachers and teachers to understand and implement tools to support and incentivise effective teaching and learning.  

Approach and methodology 

This project will follow an approach that is appropriate for the educational context of Nepal and the needs and priorities of the stakeholders. Project resources and approach will be based on our “Teaching for Success” Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Framework for teachers of all subjects. This will enable teachers to understand and plan their own professional development.

It will also guide teacher educators, headteachers and local governments on how to best support teachers to develop their knowledge and skills. The CPD framework would form the core of all teacher activities in Quality Education; Quality Schools (QEQS).
