Fully – Funded Traning by RELO
At the US Embassy in Islamabad, the Regional English Language Office (RELO) will give 100 English language teachers a chance to get a fully-funded six-week cultural exchange program at the University of Nebraska in Omaha, USA.
A non-profit organization Vision-Building Future (VBF), will execute the program for magnificent in-service government and foundation secondary school English language faculty.
The TEA program has been planned to make teachers able to get a comprehensive understanding of the US culture and educational strategies as well as to create effective, long-term contacts and reciprocal understanding between American and Pakistani faculty and students.
For this professional development program, VBF desires to hire teachers from a number of geographically and culturally different places as well as from demanding backgrounds. The success of the program is ensured with the collaboration of local government bodies, newspapers, and radio stations to attract applicants from Pakistan’s rural and underserved areas.
In order to maximize the program’s access, campaigns are being run in far-away areas including Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Gilgit. Furthermore, live sessions on social media are being arranged to help energetic and enthusiastic candidates with the applying process for the next program cycle.
After attending the program, the applicants will be members of the Pakistan-US Alumni Network and they would have an eligibility to apply for the TEA small grants award to organize a training further of 10 weeks in their district to share their knowledge.
