AMIDEAST, the largest American provider of English language training in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), has partnered with World Learning/SIT Graduate Institute—a U.S.-based global leader in teacher education—to launch a unique certificate program for teachers of English. Representing over 100 years’ experience in education, the two prestigious nonprofit organizations have joined forces to meet the growing demand in the Arab world for quality training in English language teaching and provide current and future teachers the first such American-accredited program available throughout the region.
Launched in 2011, the Arab Women’s Entrepreneurship Project (AWEP) is helping women to overcome barriers to their effective participation in the regional economy by providing access to training, mentoring, and other forms of support that enhance the chances that women participants in its programs will succeed as they start a new business or expand an existing one. By focusing on women from underserved backgrounds, the project seeks to help a greater number of the region’s women to realize their entrepreneurial goals and thereby enhance the region’s economic potential. Funding from Citi Foundation has enabled AWEP to offer training rounds in Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, and the U.A.E.
Through the Teachers of Critical Languages Program (TCLP), Egyptian teachers are helping American youth meet the challenges of learning Arabic while enriching the students’ understanding of the region. For three years beginning in 2008, AMIDEAST has worked as a subcontractor to American Councils for International Education to recruit the Egyptian teachers, who spend a year teaching Arabic language and culture for an academic year at primary and secondary schools across the United States. The program, which is funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State, is also designed to provide the Egyptian teachers with opportunities to learn more about U.S. teaching methodologies, culture, and society, as well as to improve their English language proficiency.
