Through the Peacekeeping English Project we have worked with ministries in 38 countries to provide high-quality training services and sustainable systems for English language training. Aimed specifically at the military, police and other security forces, the project is about more than teaching English; it continues to develop awareness of global issues, change attitudes and develop professional skills to help to deal with conflict prevention and conflict resolution.
To date 34 projects have been handed over to local partners and over 1,200 local teachers have been trained through the programme, either directly through courses delivered by teachers trained through the programme, or indirectly through course materials, self-access centres or outreach activities.
Projects have been run successfully throughout Africa, Asia, Europe and Central America. Scoping and consultancy services have been delivered in Indonesia, Malaysia, Regional Africa, Sudan, Yemen, Djibouti, Afghanistan and Iraq.
Advice and support has been provided in curriculum and syllabus design, international English language examinations, English Language Teaching methodology and the setting up of 180 self-access centres.
