Champion Teachers Pacific Alliance promotes the construction of professional connections across geographies and engenders trust in the United Kingdom and in the power that education has to transform lives and communities, strengthen equality, prosperity and security. It supports our regional ambition to achieve improved quality in basic education through capacity building and English language teaching.
This will be an opportunity to share with ministry authorities and other participants their learning journey, outcomes, success stories, challenges faced and the reasons why Exploratory Action Research constitutes a powerful tool for strengthening the teaching profession in our countries. Teachers from Colombia, Chile and Peru are gathering in Lima to close a six month Exploratory Action Research experience.
The event will also be an opportunity for the Pacific Alliance decision makers from ministries of education to share their policy framework for English language teaching and learning in the public education, its priorities and challenges, success indicators, and innovative initiatives.
