British Council South Africa has partnered with the South African Department of Basic Education (DBE) to support their literacy and numeracy strategy. The strategy is designed to improve the quality of teaching of English as a First Additional Language (EFAL) in South African state schools, particularly in the foundation phase.

The British Council project, English for Development, will contribute to the improvement of the standard of English Language teaching in South African state schools, particularly in under-resourced schools.

English for Development also addresses quality primary teacher training in English First Additional Language in South Africa and by increasing the accessibility of British Council teaching and learning resources, the project supports English learning and teacher development.

English teachers are encouraged to keep an eye on our news page where you can learn about the most recent teaching and training development opportunities under the project.
