Potential collaboration explored with the Government of Bangladesh

On Sunday 17 February 2013, English in Action led an orientation and cooperation workshop in collaboration with the Directorate of Primary Education (DPE), Government of Bangladesh.

The aim of the workshop was to introduce current and future English in Action activities in the field to all the central level stakeholders, especially the Project Steering Committee (PSC) members.
The objectives of the workshop were:

  • To introduce the English in Action project to all, including the PSC members
  • To explore possibilities for potential collaboration with the Government of Bangladesh in different areas of teacher training, materials development, research monitoring and evaluation and assessment
  • To agree on concrete action points as next steps

The workshop was chaired by Mr. Shyamal Kanti Ghosh, DG DPE with the honourable MoPME Secretary Mr. M. M Neazuddin as Chief Guest and Mr. A. S. Mahmood, Joint Secretary (Secondary) MoE as special guest.

Mr. Shyamal Kanti Ghosh, DG, DPE mentioned that he was very impressed with the progress the teachers and students were making in EIA supported schools. He was convinced that those students will certainly be able to compete strongly in the national and international labour market. He also hoped that EIA will expand in more upazilas and schools and mentioned that DPE will be ready to provide any necessary support and guidance for effective implementation of the project.

Mr. A.S Mahmood, Joint Secretary (Secondary), MoE, highly appreciated EIA’s work and highlighted the role and importance of English in economic development of the country. He described EIA as a very timely and appropriate project for Bangladesh.
