Fifteen primary teachers from the Philippines will be in Singapore September to December to complete the Customized Training Programme (CTP) under the Leaders and Educators in Asia Programme (LEAP) which is a subset of the PGDE programme, where LEAP teachers do only specific components of the programme instead of the whole PGDE programme. It is specially designed to cater for the teachers’ needs based on their local context in Philippines.
I am fortunate I will be teaching both the mathematics content and pedagogy courses (a total of 50 hours to the group). The regular PGDE programme is slightly twice as long. Thus, I will have to identify critical aspects to develop the course and to capitalize on the fact that these are experienced teachers.
I have created a separate blog for this course at http://leap4teachers.blogspot.com/
