This is the first of a series of occasional papers commissioned by the Education Sector Group of the UK Government's Department for International Development in India. Each paper represents a study or a piece of research on some aspect of education. The studies aim to provide informed judgements from which policy decisions may be drawn, or to provide models of quality, through which the understanding and practice of teaching and learning may be enhanced. The material produced is of interest to a wide audience of education professionals, both in India and elsewhere.

Although these papers are issued by DFID (India), the views expressed in them are entirely those of the authors and do not necessarily represent DFID's own policies or views. Any correspondence on their content should therefore be addressed to the authors and not to DFID.

The author of this paper, Tansy Jessop, is an education consultant whose special interests are in teacher development, language teaching, research and policy. Her doctoral thesis used the narratives of rural primary teachers in KwaZulu-Natal as a tool for teacher development. She has worked as a consultant in Palestine, South Africa and India.
