Capacity Building Programmes
WB-THF Enhancing Indonesian Teacher Education
The Government of Indonesia has made significant progress in improving teacher quality to mitigate concerns over the low quality of student learning outcomes, e.g. via the Professional Pedagogical Training Programme for teachers (Pendidikan Profesi Guru, PPG).
This Professional Learning Programme, designed by the World Bank and The HEAD Foundation, specifically for Mathematics and Science teacher trainers, will critically examine current arrangements in the delivery and effectiveness of the PPG. This seminar draws upon both Indonesian experience and Singaporean perspectives to recommend strategies to strengthen the capacity of Science and Mathematics teacher trainers in Indonesia.
Participants from leading Indonesian teacher training institutions will learn good practices from Singaporean teacher training experts and will visit; the National Institute of Education (NIE) to observe on-the-ground implementation of its teacher educator programmes and Fajar Secondary School to learn about innovative methods of teaching Science and Mathematics.
