First international train-the-trainer program proves successful

First international train-the-trainer program proves successful

  • Published on Sunday, March 20, 2016

ABILITY English and MEGT Institute recently signed an agreement with a university in Vietnam to deliver a customised five-day professional development “train-the-trainer” program.

The ABILITY English team has just successfully delivered the first of these programs to teachers at Tra Vinh University, which has been met with positive feedback.

The “train-the-trainer” program is part of the Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training’s National Foreign Language 2020 Project which requires teachers to undergo training in updating and improving their English language and teaching skills.

“The level of professionalism and the engaging, highly participatory and inclusive nature of the program was simply exceptional. The trainer provided useful exercises, concrete examples, excellent analysis, and feedback.

Tra Vinh University’s teachers have gained great knowledge  and now feel more empowered. They now have the skills to confidently deliver their courses.”

ABILITY English is currently negotiating the terms and conditions for a curriculum consultancy for an English Language Centre in Vietnam. The potential for further “train-the-trainer” programs in other Southeast Asian countries is also being explored.

Other future possible collaborations could include the creation of a regulated Vietnamese English language teacher qualifications framework, curriculum consultancies, study tours and articulation pathway programs.
