British Council hiring Team Leader to oversee the Development of English Language Teaching Resource

Flexible location with field visits to Nepal, 14 May 2018

About the Project 

English Language Teacher Education Project (EL-TEP) is a two-year pilot project jointly implemented by the Government of Nepal’s National Centre for Educational Development (NCED) and British Council. The project focuses on developing both content knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge of English language teachers (ELT) from government school teaching grades 4 – 8 (9 -14 year olds). 

The project follows NCED’s Teacher Professional Development (TPD) Programme – 10 days of face-to-face training followed by five days of classroom projects. This is done in two phases over a period of 2-5 years. This pilot project will supplement this with monthly Teacher Activity Groups (TAGs) where teachers meet to access print, digital and mobile self-access resources for their own Continuing Professional Development (CPD). TAGs will be facilitated by Resource Persons and trainers at the local level. After teachers submit their classroom projects as part of the TPD programme, they will be observed by trainers who will provide feedback on their classroom practice. 

About the Role 

We are seeking a Team Leader to oversee and contribute to the development of EL-TEP resources including:

  • face-to-face training materials for Phase 1: ELT content and language proficiency and Phase 2: ELT pedagogy (c. 90 hrs)

  • self-access resources for TAGs and CPD (c.150 hrs)

  • materials pitched at level B1 on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for languages

  • qualitative data collection tools for baseline and ongoing case studies.

The Team Leader will work with the EL-TEP task force, comprising members from NCED and British Council NB. Task force members will have limited time to contribute so work will have to be allocated realistically with team leader playing an active role in resource development.

Main duties

  • quality assure the NCED ELT Training curriculum for grades 4 – 8 (focusing on ELT proficiency and pedagogical skills) 

  • conduct an audit of British Council and third party content to be incorporated into the project 

  • use the results from teachers’ Aptis tests to inform the development of resources 

  • develop research tools for and supervise three national researchers who will collect data from parents, community members,  teachers, head teachers and students to explore issues around ELT and CPD 

  • work closely with the task force to develop and review appropriate materials for all face-to-face training and TAGs

  • ensure materials demonstrate British Council expertise in safeguarding, equality, diversity and inclusion and environmental policies and standards

  • remotely facilitate regular progress review meetings with the task force and research teams.
