Panama Bilingue



His Excellency Daniel Fabrega, Ambassador of Panama with the group of teachers at the graduation event on Friday 13 March.

The English Section in the School of Social Sciences has established a partnership with Edinburgh College for the professional development of English teachers.

The first successful bid was Panama Bilingue, in which the Panamanian government is providing funding for secondary school language and subject teachers to travel to the UK to develop their English language proficiency and their teaching methodology.

The first group of teachers arrived in January 2015 for an eight week course and two further groups are expected in May and September. This successful partnership paves the way for further joint bids.
