Team Leader and Writer: EDGE Extension Programme (Bangladesh, India, Nepal)

Updated: Sep 18, 2019

The British Council’s English and Digital for Girls’ Education (EDGE) programme involves the development of skills in peer-led after-school clubs for adolescent girls in India, Bangladesh and Nepal. The programme runs across three phases of input and activity, with outcomes focused on:

  • Confidence and skills in English

  • Digital skills and confidence

  • 21st-century skills and awareness of social issues

  • leadership and facilitation skills to run peer-led clubs


As team leader of the third 'extension' phrase of the programme was to lead a team of Indian writers (and write content myself) totalling 120 hours of integrated English, digital and socially-aware A2 materials.
