UN Sustainability Goal 4

Quality Education is the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 4 to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all.

Professor Allen Thurston at Queen's University Belfast asked us to provide the translation of a Peer tutoring pack with information and guidance for teachers on how to set up and successfully run a ‘Paired Reading’ programme. The aim of the project is to develop reading skills in schools in poorer areas in Brazil.

Professor Thurston's work has been recognized as a contribution to SDG 4.

The translator chosen for this particular assignment is based in Brazil and has worked as teacher, teacher trainer and publisher of educational resources. She holds an MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from the University of London and is a qualified member of the UK-based Institute of Translation and Interpreting.
