British Council Global School Partnership (GSP) Programme and Kathmandu University School of Education (KUSOED) is organising a Graduation programme to award certificates and results to the first batch of 14 teachers on completing Diploma on Global Education and Learning on 23 September 2011 at KUSOED, Balkumari, Lalitpur.

As part of its Global Teacher Accreditation strand, British Council’s GSP programme and Cambridge Education Foundation in UK joined hands with KUSOED in May 2011 to launch a six month part time course on Global Education and Learning for teachers from the GSP programme. The course focused on Human Development and Learning, Issues in Education and Curriculum Development and Evaluation.  

Prof. Mana Prasad Wagley, Dean, KUSOED said  “This initiative taken by British Council’s GSP programme to empower teachers on Global Education is praiseworthy. I am sure this bond between Kathmandu University and the British Council will enrich the quality of school education. We would like to thank the BC for entrusting us to educate the selected teachers under GSP.”

The second batch of 20 teachers will begin the course in November 2011.

After handing over cetificates to the teachers, British Council Country Director Dr Robert Monro said

“The aim of the British Council is to enhance educational opportunities in Nepal by working with partners to introduce more international ideas and standards.  Our partnership with Kathmandu University to develop and deliver this course on Global Education and Learning is an excellent example of this.  I would like to thank them for this cooperation and congratulate the participants who have successfully completed the course on their achievement.  I hope that their students will see the benefits! “
