The “Teaching for Success, Tunisia” project is launched at the initiative of the Tunisian government and the UK government in collaboration with the British embassy in Tunis by means of an agreement signed in Tunis.
The project aimed to further boost efficiency into the language teachers’ training.
The three-year project includes special technological devices to provide for the new trainees, a new mechanism to teach language for students, Minister of Education Hatem Ben Salem told media on the sidelines of the National Seminar for English Language Teaching.
The “Teaching for Success, Tunisia” project will start with the training of a specific group in the regions, said the minister noting that all the possibilities will be provided to start teaching the English language in Grade four as of the school year 2019/2020.
Louise de Sousa British Ambassador to Tunisia said the project is a key tool to help English teaching, by means of soft skills and effective pedagogical methods, to reach the successful transition from education to the job market for young Tunisians.
She indicates that that the project is provided for students to learn English easier at a lower cost and helps future graduate students to learn the language to join the labour market easily.
Robert Ness, Director of the British Council in Tunis said “the project makes access to the language easier to all Tunisians and provides an opportunity for Tunisians to improve both learning and teaching skills of the English language, in addition to building communication and leadership skills to be one of the main tenets of the future programme.
