This audit is part of a larger, British Council funded project: 'Investigating NEST schemes around the world: supporting NEST/LET collaborative practices'. The audit provides an overview of government sponsored schemes which attract native English speaker teachers (NESTs) to work in state education. It is intended for English language teachers who are interested in working in different countries and in different education systems. It will also be of interest to those who research these schemes and the experiences of teachers on them.
