British Council And TSCHE Begin Curriculum Reform Pilot In Telangana HEIs

British Council, the UK’s international organisation for educational opportunities and cultural exchange, hosted a policy dialogue with key stakeholders from the state of Telangana to discuss the internationalisation of higher education institutions in the state.

Over the last few years, the British Council and the Telangana State Council of Higher Education (TSCHE) have been successfully collaborating to mutually benefit their aim for the employment ambitions of the youth.

Global Wales, through the British Council, and the state of Telangana, through TSCHE, will begin implementation of initiatives aimed to elevate the standard of education at HEIs in the state – an important step towards achieving the state’s and NEP 2020’s internationalisation agenda. The policy dialogue was followed by an announcement of the next steps on the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the state of Telangana and the Welsh Government in November 2020.
