ABSTRACT

This study recounts the planning and processes undertaken to produce English language trainers and teaching materials for Prathom teachers of English in the Udon Thani and surrounding areas. In order to conduct teacher training courses a framework of teacher trainers based on commercial pyramid selling techniques has been adopted with a view to encouraging schools to develop self sufficiency techniques whilst under the quality control guidelines agreed as part of the program.

 

This project is in its infancy and has only reached the planning stages; however, early indications are that there will be sufficient support to train four thousand teachers in a year, thus adopting the ethos of existing government educational policy and implementing it in additional areas that need attention.
