Program Description

The Blended English Teacher Training of Trainers - Afghanistan program trains English language teacher trainers from Afghanistan.

In partnership with National Geographic’s Cengage Learning, World Learning delivers a blended training of trainers program for seven English language teachers from Afghanistan who previously competed the U.S. Department of State’s English ACCESS Micro-scholarship program. Following an initial face-to-face training in Delhi, India, each trainer leads a group of English language teachers from their communities through two online courses, English for Teaching and Professional Knowledge, conducting monthly face-to-face workshops. The 7 trainers will train 41 teachers through the program, and those who successfully finish both courses are invited to a second in-person graduation conference in Delhi.

Program Goals

  • Train English language teacher trainers to provide training in their home communities.
