Raising English Language Standards
Our vision is to enable people to achieve more for themselves and their communities by raising the level of English for All.
English Partnerships (earlier known as Project English) was initiated in 2007, working across the public/state sector, CSR foundations and NGOs, with the aim of raising the standard of English of young aspiring people to facilitate their access to education and career opportunities. To achieve this impact we design and deliver various interventions impacting teacher trainers, teachers and learners.
We continually engage with a range of stakeholders including policy makers, influencers, institutions and participants in our work and to achieve our vision.
We work with Central and State governments, School bodies, Corporate, CSR foundations and NGOs, to improve teaching and learning of English, delivering high quality impact at a scale.
