British Council teacher training roadshows are designed to introduce teachers to practical teaching activities that they can immediately use in their own English lessons. The activities are either free to reproduce or use low-cost resources so that teachers can easily adopt these methods in their classrooms.
The British Council has been delivering one day teacher training workshops, known as ‘roadshows’ to Sri Lankan primary and secondary school teachers across the country for the last four years. Previous workshops have been held in Chilaw, Eheliagoda, Vavuniya, Kalutara, Vavuniya, Jaffna, Galle, Mahiyangana, Polonaruwa, Colombo and Kandy and overall around 2500 teachers have been supported and motivated through these sessions. More recently, the British Council and Commercial Bank joined together on 27 October 2013 to deliver a roadshow in Wadduwa to over 150 local teachers.
Teachers attending the Wadduwa roadshow gave very positive feedback:
“Implement this programme to all corners of Sri Lanka, especially rural areas.”
“I think that all teachers of English should be trained like this in the future.”
What is on the agenda?
The British Council training team will deliver a roadshow for up to 200 local teachers on the theme ’Spoken English skills get your students talking!'.
The four lively and practical sessions will cover
- controlled speaking practice activities
- free speaking practice activities
- pronunciation activities
- maximising students’ talking time.
Due to limited capacity this is a closed event. If you are a teacher from a local school and would like to attend, please contact us.
