United Kingdom: Research into Teacher Trainer Award

Client: SQA and Scottish Government

Our brief was to collect and collate details of current courses/ qualifications offered by providers of TESOL training across the United Kingdom in the area of Training the Trainer courses for Higher/Tertiary Education and those offered by private providers. We conducted focus group meetings with ESOL providers and drew up recommendations for a ‘Trainer the Trainer’ course (both in terms of content and approach) for potential SQA trainers on new SQA qualifications. The report has been forwarded for action to the Scottish Office by the SQA.
