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. We aim to raise the standard of English to help young aspiring people to access education and career opportunities. To achieve this impact we design and deliver various interventions impacting head teachers, administrators, teacher educators, teachers and learners.
Our projects are designed to support local initiatives in teacher education and management, Continuing Professional Development (CPD), curriculum and textbook reform, building local research capacity and teacher communities. We provide access to free digital resources (including the TeachingEnglish website), audio-visual resources (including our radio programme series TeachingEnglish Radio India) and we integrate innovative technologies to enhance learning wherever possible.
We work with state governments, school bodies, corporates, foundations, universities and NGOs to improve the teaching and learning of English, delivering high quality impact at scale.
