Having visited Kazakhstan and interviewed those involved, I am proud to be associated with the educational work that is going on in this welcoming country ("Well, oil be. Kazakhs turn to the British for overhaul tips", 1 June).

Of the 36 teachers from the UK, Republic of Ireland, US and New Zealand who were hired last year to work in the Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools for the first year of this project, 35 have renewed their contracts for the coming year. I think that says something good about the project, government, country and people.
