Iraq, Edinburgh, Kazakhstan and Serbia

The team is scattered all over the place at the moment. Alistair and I have just returned from Juba where we were training researchers in the first stage of a project to develop a National English Language Policy Framework for the South Sudan Ministry of Education, Science and Technology. The work is being managed by the Windle Trust and funded through UNICEF. He is off to London to deliver a keynote speech on English in Iraq for the British Council during which he will describe his work there over the last year or so. Mid-week, we will be running a workshop for the MSc TESOL Testing Group students at Edinburgh University. Claire is currently in Astana, Kazakhstan, delivering training for Cambridge Assessment and Rob will be off next week to continue our support in developing the Peacekeeping English Project in Serbia.
