Education Consultancy service

The Consultancy arm of the British Yemeni Arabic Institute adds an extra dimension to the ethos of the Institute. Our students, whether professionals, academics or visitors to Yemen meet and debate current development and political issues with international and local consultants. From time to time we organize internships.
Emily Allardyce is currently working with the Yemen Ministry of Education on a World Bank funded project to develop a model for school community grants. This is part of the girls' education strategy.
