FEP establishes in 2002, has the privilege to spread awareness about the importance of teaching and learning in the various regions of Pakistan. It successfully enabled, through the training programs, students to achieve betters posts in various organizations, due to their proficiency of the English language.
Pakistan has had the influence of British for long, subsequently the government declared English as the official language. This however only became a dilemma for the majority. In the government schools, being run in the rural and the urban areas do not have appropriate teachers. Most of the course books after matriculation haven’t even been translated to Urdu. This becomes a major reason a huge chunk to simply quit studying.
1.2 Objectives of the programme
The government schools are located all over the country, even in the remotest of areas. It is however clearly evident that in these schools, facilities are lacking and the administration are very weak. The teachers in the schools are ineligible as they lack the required knowledge. The overall objective in to train the teachers to make them capable of producing students from government schools, who are able to compete on national levels, on the basis of their knowledge.
In the rural population of southern Punjab, English language is hardly spoken or understood. This has made the population of this area backward. The purpose of this programme is to make these people able enough to understand, to be able to converse and write English language with minimum grammatical and pronunciation mistakes.
The direct beneficiaries are the government school teachers, whereas the indirect beneficiary will be the students of the government schools of these regions. By the end of the programme, 100 school teachers will be well trained in teaching English language. The will be teaching in various government schools at secondary level of education.
The students, who otherwise, quit further studies, due to their inefficiency to understand the books that are in English, will become capable to pursue their education. English language will not be barrier anymore.
