ANALYZING THE ROLE OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE COMPETENCY AND ITS IMPACTS ON PROFESSIONAL MOBILITY OF TEACHERS IN PAKISTAN: GLOBALIZATION PERSPECTIVE
The aim of the study is to investigate the role of the English language and its impacts on the professional mobility of teachers in Pakistan. English is considered the backbone of educational and professional mobility in Pakistan and at the global level as it reflects its importance for academic and professional success. In order to cope with the needs of global trends in education English language is the only medium to develop competencies. To understand this phenomenon n=30 articles were taken as a sample of the study. The articles were analyzed critically by using qualitative design. The identified gap through the literature review was that there were no recent studies conducted on the English language and its impact on the teaching profession in the current era. The need to acquire proficiency and competency in English cannot be denied when it comes to the teaching profession. The paper highlighted that English language teaching methods in Pakistan are not meeting the criteria to overcome language deficiencies. It was also identified that even though there are a number of teacher training programs offered by public sector institutes, the desired outcome was not achieved due to the lack of language competency by the teachers. The current situation and globalization have proved that language deficiency can lead to serious teaching and learning consequences. All developed and developing countries are striving to achieve global standards of language teaching to achieve the best results. The objective was to propose possible ways to ensure the professional mobility of teachers who are suffering from language deficiencies. The paper was conducted through a theoretical analysis of available literature. This paper will be beneficial to all concerned teachers, policymakers, and researchers.
