Four short-term British Council Key English Language Teaching (KELT) tertiary education projects in South India were evaluated through visits, interviews and study of relevant documents. An evaluation model was developed incorporating four outcome criteria of project success (product, teacher development, sustainability, extendibility) and four input predictors (ongoing institutional support, ongoing training as education, consultant as team member, growing professional perception). Recommendations on future policy are given; these include the wider dissemination of existing information about ELT projects in India and involve a homogeneous but unequal network design.
