“We provide a full consultancy and management service for schools adopting International Curricullum. We have worked with education institutions all over Indonesia, providing personal and professional expertise in international education and training. Some of the services are as followed:
A) Cambridge International Certificate for Teachers & Trainers (CICTT)
In its intent, purpose and content, the Certificate is geared to the concept of active learning.
Active learning is very different from the traditional ‘teacher down’ model of learning where the teacher stands at the front of the class presenting information which the learners dutifully write down, learn (often by rote) and are duly tested upon. Such an approach is inflexible, direct and too authoritarian.
Active learning involves the learners in activities developed and managed by the teacher. Such activities may involve a range of teaching and learning approaches including group work, role play, learner presentations, fieldwork, experimentation, and using simulations.
Active learning is more diverse (and certainly more engaging) than the ‘teacher down’ approach and needs careful planning and preparation, clear identification of learning objectives, accurate tailoring of assessment and a real awareness of flexibility.
B) Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT)
The Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) is a test developed by Cambridge ESOL for teachers of English of other languages. TKT tests candidates’ knowledge of concepts related to language, language use and the background to and practice of language teaching and learning. It’s not a test of the practical skills teachers need to use in their own classrooms or of English language proficiency.
TKT consists of three modules which can be taken together, or separately, in any order. The content of TKT is tested by means of objective tasks, such as matching and multiple choice. The test for each module consists of 80 questions.
There are no entry requirements, such as previous teaching experience and/or teaching or language qualifications, for TKT, but candidates should have at least an intermediate level of English, e.g. PET, IELTS 4, CEF/ALTE B1. They are also expected to understand a range of about 400 terms describing the practice of English Language Teaching(ELT). A selection of these terms appears in each TKT module.TKT helps teachers to find out about the main areas of teaching knowledge needed in the English language teaching classroom.
