Effectiveness of Teachers Training in BRAC Schools

The study attempted to evaluate the newly designed training module for teachers who are teaching English in class three, four, and five of BRAC Non-formal Primary Education (NFPE) schools. With the knowledge of BRAC graduates’ relative weakness in English when they join the Government Formal Schools, the Materials Development Unit (MDU) has made a concerted effort in addressing this issue concerning English teaching. Also, MDU’s goal entailed a plan to break away from the top down model of training, traditionally followed. The study aimed to see how much of these goals have been met, what are the problems involved, and how to address those.
