Our goal is to internationalize education in the public sector, and create a relaxed and friendly environment to enable students to gain confidence in their spoken English. We take professionalism in teaching seriously, and as part of that offer regular professional development sessions to assist our staff in their own development, enabling them to reach higher standards both in the short term and in the future.
Our teacher training program consists of 5 sections, on-board orientation, professional development, mentorship system, local cultural learning and infusion, as well as counseling.
The Mentorship Program is a platform for experienced CIPTC educators to be paired with teachers who are new to the company to aide them in the orientation of their school culture, classroom management, lesson planning, instructional strategies and professional development. The effective Mentors at CIPTC prove to be good listeners and are trustworthy, caring, responsible and positive. Our Mentors provide Mentees with outlets for new teaching methods, lesson designs, and hopefully inspire their protégés to try new instructional strategies in their classrooms.
