100 Filipino English teachers will receive training from the US government.
The US government will provide intensive training seminars to at least 100 English teachers countrywide to improve their teaching strategies and proficiency in English language education.
According to a news release from the US Embassy on Thursday, the workshops use a “training the trainers” curriculum created especially for the Philippines by US-sponsored English Language Specialists Donna Brinton and Jan Frodesen.
The initiative is anticipated to assist more than 7,000 teachers and 250,000 children in the Philippines by preparing participants to conduct follow-up training sessions with peers in their local communities.
According to Brinton and Frodesen, the program allows participants to mentor other teachers in their local communities by sharing knowledge, tactics, and methods.
More than 60 instructors from educational institutions in Mindanao, including public high schools in Basilan, Sulu, and Tawi-Tawi, got training during the first two weeks of workshops in Manila.
Twelve teachers from the English Access Microscholarship Program of the State Department, which also had participants from Fiji, joined the Manila program.
From May 22 to May 26 in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, more than 50 instructors from different campuses of Palawan State University are expected to attend the last round of seminars.
MaryKay Carlson, the US ambassador to the Philippines, met with workshop attendees on Wednesday to reiterate the US commitment to collaborating with allies to support high-quality education in the nation, particularly in language acquisition.
“We know that having a strong educational system is the key to prosperity,” Ambassador Carlson stated. “As committed Filipino educators share these techniques with their peers and students; the United States looks forward to seeing the positive results of this program.”
The National Commission on Muslim Filipinos, the non-governmental organization Synergeia Foundation, Inc., Palawan State University, and the Ministry of Basic, Higher, and Technical Education in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao worked together on these seminars.
