Abstract

Chapter outlining the national context in which the English in action programme was implemented, for the book 'Sustainable English language teacher development at scale: lessons from Bangladesh'

This book offers a thorough and comprehensive review of the lessons learnt from the award-winning 'English in Action' English language teacher development programme, which ran in government primary and secondary schools across Bangladesh from 2008 to 2017. Over the course of nine years the programme involved 51,000 teachers and 20 million students, demonstrably raising standards of teachers' classroom practice and students' English-language attainment, and won the British Council ELTON Award for Local Innovation (2013) and Times Higher Education Award for International Impact (2018).
