The Impact of Teacher Training on Teacher and Student Outcomes: Evidence from a Randomised Experiment in Beijing Migrant Schools

This article exploits a randomised controlled trial to evaluate the impact of an intensive, short-term in-service teacher training programme on the performance of English teachers in Beijing migrant schools and their students. The results show no significant impacts of teacher training on either teacher or student English test scores and thus imply the ineffectiveness of short-term teacher training programmes on teacher and student performance.
