The Higher Committee for Education Development in Iraq (HCEDI) and Ball State University announce an innovative, creative, first-of-its-kind partnership to develop an English Language Institute for Iraqi undergraduate and graduate scholarship recipients. This program will be housed within the International Zone in Baghdad, Iraq, adjacent to the HCEDI headquarters and less than one mile from the U.S. embassy, and will serve approximately 300 students a year. The goal of the program is to improve the Iraqi scholarship recipients’ English ability prior to their departure to an English-speaking country for university study.

We are seeking highly motivated, well-trained, creative individuals to serve as consultants to Ball State University and work with approximately 40 Iraqis who will be teaching in this program. To varying degrees, the scope of work for each of these consulting contracts will involve curriculum development and implementation, teaching Iraqi students and training teachers. This expatriate team will be working closely with a team of professionals from Ball State University to design and deliver a four-month training program to the teachers prior to the opening of the Institute.
