Ukraine: PRESETT programme
In May 2019, Alan Mackenzie visited four universities in Ukraine in different cities (Kyiv, Kharkiv, Uman and Vinnytsia) to evaluate the PRESETT programme. This aimed to transform the pre-services teacher preparation course for English language teachers in Pedagogical Universities across Ukraine. An online survey of teachers and students comparing the traditional methodology course with the new experimental programme was backed up by on-the-ground observations and focus groups with the university lecturers, students, school-teacher mentors and interviews with university rectors. British Council is using the report to inform future development and to input into thought leadership on education in Ukraine.
