With our In-service Training Programme, we offer schools much needed professional development courses to give each school the opportunity to maintain highly professional, highly motivated, enthusiastic, effective classroom practitioners.

The In-service Training department runs short term and long term courses mainly during the school term. Courses are held in the form of workshops or seminars.

 

Aims
We aim to equip teachers in their understanding and practice of some of the fundamental areas involved in effective teaching. We also try to examine the concepts of relational teaching and learning. All this incorporated with looking closely at the influence of one’s fundamental beliefs about God upon the practice of education.

 

Objectives

  • To equip both primary and secondary school teachers with up to date teaching skills and information
  • To address problem areas in the content subjects and enhance the teachers’ understanding of the syllabi
  • To address management issues such as school administration, finances and marketing
  • To provide Christian Education courses for school running on Christian principles

 

Pre-requisites
Courses are open to all in the teaching field.

 

Period of Study
Courses vary from one day to three days.
