English Lan­guage Roadmap 20152025 to el­e­vate teach­ing skills

The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - HOME -

NILAI: De­vel­op­ing and up­skilling the av­er­age teacher to re-brand the en­tire teach­ing pro­fes­sion is no longer seen as an im­pos­si­ble mis­sion, said Ed­u­ca­tion deputy di­rec­tor Datuk Dr Amin Senin.

He said the big­gest gains in the coun­try’s ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem would come from el­e­vat­ing the stan­dards and up­grad­ing the skills and com­pe­tency of teach­ers to cre­ate a high-qual­ity work­force.

“There­fore, it is in­cum­bent upon ed­u­ca­tors to con­tinue re­fin­ing their skills in ac­cor­dance to what is out­lined in the Malaysian Ed­u­ca­tion Blueprint and the English Lan­guage Roadmap 2015-2025," he said at the clos­ing cer­e­mony of the Pro­fes­sional Up­skilling of English Lan­guage Teach­ers Sym­po­sium 2017 at the English Lan­guage Teach­ing Cen­tre, Ban­dar En­stek yes­ter­day.

His speech was read by Ed­u­ca­tion deputy di­rec­tor of Cur­ricu­lum Devel­op­ment Di­vi­sion Dr Mo­hamed Abu Bakar.

He said the English Lan­guage Roadmap 2015-2025, a prod­uct of the English Lan­guage Stan­dards and Qual­ity Coun­cil and an ex­ten­sion of the blueprint, set out to do pre­cisely this. – Ber­nama
