Teacher Training- Professional Development Qualification

12 Mar 2018

Across the  school, teachers are being offered various modules of a Professional Development Qualification (PDQ) Course that is administered by the CIE Board. At the Junior Section, the second cohort comprising of 17 teachers submitted their portfolios for the first Teaching and Learning Module, at the end of February.  The course requires teachers to research and write papers on teaching and learning strategies, to participate in active learning through guided sessions and to observe and be observed by mentors. The module is offered once a year and the Junior Section looks forward to inducting their third cohort soon. A module in Digital Learning will also be offered sometime this year. The purpose of the PDQs is for teachers to continue to learn and grow and re-evaluate their teaching methodologies as teaching is an ever changing field.
