Graduation ceremony of training of master trainers in English (TMTE) project held

The graduation ceremony of the first cohort of primary teachers under the Training of Master Trainers in English (TMTE) project, a collaboration between the British Council and Directorate of Primary Education, were held at Dhaka PTI and Gazipur PTI on Thursday, says a press release.  

The event was attended by chief guest Md Zakir Hossen, state minister, Ministry of Primary and Mass Education, GM Hashibul Alam, Secretary, Ministry of Primary and Mass Education was also present as a special guest, along with Alamgir Mohammed Monsurul Alam, Director General, Directorate of Primary Education, Ministry of Primary and Mass Education, who chaired the virtual graduation ceremony. 

These teachers are the first group of Bangladeshi primary teachers, who started their 14-week professional development journey on 31 January 2021 in Dhaka and Gazipur PTI.  

As part of the TMTE project’s English language assessment, the British Council administered over 3,000 Aptis tests as part of its pre-training language evaluation of the primary school teachers. It was initially planned to deliver the tests face-to-face; however, due to the Covid-19 outbreak the British Council had to reassess this plan and look at a digital solution to the problem presented. With the immense support from MoPME, DPE, and British Council’s Global Assessment Operations team, the project resolved to administer these tests entirely online. Over 94 per cent of the trainees achieved A2 or above and the close support provided to candidates helped them to overcome any IT issues faced. The British Council resumed face-to-face Aptis testing on 16 June 2021, where the first cohort of primary teachers have successfully taken post-training language assessment at Dhaka and Gazipur PTI.
