Work began with the Malaysian Ministry of Education in 2013 on an evidence-based benchmarking study to evaluate the learning, teaching and assessment of English in schools.

An integrated approach to reform and align curricula, learning materials and national assessments has yielded impressive results, especially in terms of teacher development, which forms an important role in supporting the integration of English language reforms into an education system.

More than 800 master trainers trained to date have in turn trained 26,500 teachers on initiatives from learning materials adaptions and design, to formative assessment and curriculum implementation.
