Action Research Award Scheme

English UK and Cambridge English Language Assessment believe strongly in supporting the professional development of teachers. Together we run the Action Research Award Scheme for teachers working at English UK member centres.

Action research gives teachers the opportunity to investigate teaching and learning in their own classrooms. The starting point in action research is a local issue – a challenge, problem, area of potential improvement, or puzzle – that teachers want to examine systematically.

The scheme gives teachers insight into their own practice, broadens their professional development and has additional benefits for learners, other teachers and the institution at which they work. One project will be awarded the Action Research Award. Find out more about 2016's winner and participants.

We are delighted that Simon Borg, Visiting Professor of TESOL at the University of Leeds, has once again agreed help support the research through workshops and tutorials.
