Cambridge, Sampoerna link up on teacher training
The Jakarta Post
Cambridge International Examinations education provider and Putera Sampoerna Foundation are working on a joint project that aims to develop the proficiency of Cambridge’s Indonesian school teachers.
The two-day training for 150 Cambridge school teachers will start this April, covering geography, mathematics, economics, entrepreneurship, physical education, art and design, as well as information and computer technology.
After signing an agreement in Jakarta on Friday, Cambridge and Putera Sampoerna expressed hope that the cooperation would continue beyond April with another program that would allow certified teachers to share their knowledge with other international school teachers across Indonesia.
Gusman Yahya, head of the Sampoerna Foundation’s School Development Outreach, said the April joint effort would be a rare opportunity for local teachers to experience a professional development program.
The collaboration is expected to improve teachers’ proficiency so they can help prepare students to enter the global market, he said.
Catering to the high demand for international schools in Indonesia, Cambridge recently officially opened its 200th school, the Sampoerna Academy, in South Jakarta. (hol)
