2019-02-01

In Marriott Hotel today RA Minister of Education and Science, Arayik Harutyunyan and the extraordinary and plenipotentiary Ambassador of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Judith Farnworth have signed a memorandum of cooperation. With this initiative, the establishing of English clubs in the provincial schools of Armenian will be the second undertaking in the “Improving Skills for a Much Stronger Society” project.
RA Minister of Education and Science, Arayik Harutyunyan, emphasized in his welcoming speech that setting up language teaching clubs in schools is in line with the programs of the Government and the Ministry of Education and Science: “Such Clubs will improve the language skills in students, contribute to the professional development of teachers, and encourage students to be analytical thinkers. We need a student, who, after graduation, will have the ability to think, assess, analyze and debate independently. Many people in our society lack these skills which leads to violation of coexisting rules. This project is one of those important undertakings, which can help solve such problems” the Minister stated and added that the three new Clubs in the regions will become new community, educational, and cultural platforms. In his speech, Minister Arayik Harutyunyan thanked the Embassy of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the British Council in Armenia for such a productive cooperation and support, and he hopes that the project will be regular.
The Ambassador of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Judith Farnworth has stated in her speech that the Clubs are not only important to enhance English, but to develop skills necessary in debates and negotiations. “I have met with the teachers involved in the previous stage of the project and have received positive signs. I hope they will be able to build a strong network together with new teachers, deepening and strengthening the cooperation. It has been three years since I have been here and I totally understand how important qualityeducation for Armenian families is. In my opinion, good education can give Armenian citizens skills which can contribute to the prospering of Armenia”, stated the Ambassador underlining that the Embassy of Great Britain is ready to collaborate with the Ministry of Education and Science.
Let us mention that the project of establishing English clubs is being implemented by the British Council financed by the Government of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
In the first stage of the project, six English teaching clubs have been set up in different schools both in the regions of Armenia and in Yerevan. In the second stage it is planned to open English Clubs at schools in Vayk, Jermuk (Region of Vayots Dzor), and in Berd (Region of Tavush.
