Following the success of the past 2 years, the British Council is pleased to announce its 2011 call for research proposals under the ELT Research Partnership scheme.

Through this scheme we aim to facilitate the production of innovative research to benefit the learning and teaching of English throughout the world by co-funding a number of partnership awards.  The deadline for the 3rd round of applications is 13th June 2011.

What is the purpose of ELTRP scheme?
To facilitate the production of high quality research from the UK relevant to ELT.
To improve access of ELT policy makers and professionals worldwide to high quality and relevant research from the UK
To facilitate and encourage the establishment and maintenance of active research links between ELT professionals and policy makers in the UK and overseas.
Who may apply?
Any person resident in UK with an affiliation to a UK educational institution. The award agreement may be with either the individual or the institution.

Note: Although the applicant must be resident in the UK, the research may, in whole or in part, take place outside the UK or by persons not resident in the UK.

What type of activity can be considered?
The British Council is particularly interested in research within the following areas:

  • Learning & teaching of English at younger ages
  • ICT and new technologies in ELT
  • Teacher education and training
  • English language testing and assessment and applications of the CEFR
  • English language programme evaluation
  • English for development:  Social, economic, political aspects of English, education,  and language teaching.
  • ESOL / EAL for migrants in the UK.
However, proposals for any research activity relating directly to the learning, teaching, or assessment of English as a foreign, second, or additional language will be considered.
There must be a clear research output which must be in a form that can be shared publicly and without cost throughout the world.
In addition to this output, researchers are encouraged to publish further outputs elsewhere, for example in peer-reviewed journals and at conferences.
The research must not have already taken place or be under way.
The research output / final report must be in English (though there may be a version in another language as well).
Successful applicants must produce a final report on the project, and in the case of longer projects, an interim report. This would normally include the rationale, methodology, findings, discussion and implications, and references.
Funding will only be agreed for a maximum initial period of one year.
This scheme is not intended to fund the field work of Ph.D. candidates or similar.
We define research as original investigation undertaken in order to gain knowledge and understanding.

  1. You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation however I to find
    this topic to be really something which I believe I might never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very large for me.
