Introduction and background

The core purpose of the British Council’s work in school systems is to improve learning outcomesthrough:

  • Building a body of research that is publicly available on best international practice
  • Providing and enabling consultancy on system improvement on a continuum from access to quality to innovation
  • Providing services that support practitioners to deliver high quality education

In order to maintain and develop its position as a world leader in this area, the British Council has now developed a range of professional development assets that can be used in various ways by different programmes and country operations where we have an offer for schools. These assets will be closely aligned with the latest thinking of global leaders in educational discourse and the priorities of education systems worldwide.

Every country in the world needs a high quality, inclusive and equitable school system that develops young people who are able to:

  • Live and work in a globalised economy
  • Use their knowledge, skills and values to contribute responsibly locally and globally

In order to do so, there is growing consensus that school systems need to develop young people with certain core skills and competencies (often known as 21st century skills or “Deep Learning” skills) which can be categorised as:

  • Skills for living in, and contributing to, a fairer world: global citizenship and civic responsibility
  • Skills for working: collaboration and communication
  • Ways of thinking: critical thinking and problem solving
  • Key tools – crucially ICT literacy

Specifically, the British Council’s work with schools will contribute towards the development of the following core skills and competencies in young people (see Annex 3 for further details):

  • Creativity and Imagination
  • Student Leadership and Personal Development
  • Citizenship
  • Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
  • Digital Literacy
  • Collaboration and Communication

Young people who receive this high quality education and develop these skills we believe will best contribute to the future stability and prosperity of our global society.
See Annex 3 for further details of the Core Skills training packages.


The British Council seeks to recruit trainers to deliver its new Core Skills Training Packages offer to teachers and school leaders (head teachers) in Bangladesh for a period of 12 months We welcome application from individuals. Individual can specify whether they wish to be considered only for teacher training or only for school leader (head teachers) training, or for both teacher and school leader training.

Context of Core Skills Training packages

The successful trainer will deliver training interventions for teachers and/or school leaders (head teachers) based on the British Council Core Skills training packages (see Annex 3 for further details of the Core Skills training packages). The introductory training packages are designed to be delivered over the equivalent of a working day. The in-depth training packages are designed to be delivered over 3 working days with a period of approximately 9 weeks between days 1&2 and day 3. In between these face to face training events, participants will be expected to deliver their agreed actions and participate in a number of “reflect, re-plan, do” meetings. The training packages are intended to inform and inspire teachers and school leaders to reflect on and makes changes to their practice, pedagogy and, where appropriate, curriculum.
This model of professional learning is intended to follow the principles of good practice, such as: being suitable intensity; spaced; modelled; including practical elements; provision of feedback; including peer review;  self-reflection.

Successful trainers will be required to support and encourage teachers and school leaders to use a variety of means (including through online British Council forums) to collaborate and share experiences with their peers both locally and internationally.
