Global Government

The project aims at introducing criteria of foreign language knowledge evaluation among civil servants.


New quality of civil service where a foreign language is a must.

At the end of 2015 requirements for the civil servants to know the English language were for the first time set forth in the Law of Ukraine “On Civil Service” thanks to GoGlobal. An amendment was also made to the Strategy for Public Administration Reform in Ukraine, which makes it obligatory for civil servants to know foreign languages.

From now on, workers of central government agencies, and later those of regional levels, have to take a compulsory test of the English language proficiency. On completion of the test, the workers having high level of English have received a salary increment.

After being tested, the employees of state agencies can increase their level of English for free to meet the standards being implemented in the country. English will also be included in refresher course programs for civil servants.

In the civil service system of Ukraine English proficiency has to become a compulsory standard and bring national civil servants to a new level of international communication.

  • Since 2015 knowledge of English is a compulsory requirement for employment to management positions in the Presidential Administration and a number of other agencies.
  • The English language courses for more than 500 different categories of civil servants and structural units in partnership with British Council and NATO have been introduced.


The project is aimed at improving English language teaching in schools.


Improving the level of foreign language teaching.

GoGlobal in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and British Council in Ukraine have launched the project “Teachers of English as Change Agents”.

In November 2015 137 teachers in 7 regions of Ukraine (Cherkasy, Vinnytsia, Dnipropetrovsk, Kherson, Chernivtsi, Lviv and Volyn) and Kyiv started to study within the framework of the project.

Results of the pilot wave

As a result of the training each teacher in practice worked out gained knowledge and skills, held workshops and demonstration classes. “Change Agents” trained by British Council themselves become teacher trainers who pass their knowledge to fellow teachers of English in their regions. So 110 teachers were selected to take the workshop for coaches in August 2016.
