Program Description

The Access Virtual Potential Teacher Training Program is an online teacher training program supporting teachers in Indonesia to develop as professionals and teach English in English using learner-centered, communicative methods.

Through this virtual program, World Learning aims to increase the capacity and effectiveness of English language teachers in Indonesia, support inclusive education of students and professional development of teachers, and promote interactive, learner-centered education practices. Participants of the program complete two self-paced online courses developed by National Geographic Learning: English for Teaching and Professional Knowledge for English Language Teachers. Virtual Peer Learning Hubs integrate experiential learning, practical activities, and reflection into the online courses. They support teachers taking the online courses and provide a professional learning community for teachers to interact with as they complete the curriculum. Building off World Learning’s experience with the in-person ELTT program in Indonesia, this virtual program will rely on seven TESOL specialists from the World Learning pool of trainers to facilitate the training and professional development of 200 teachers in Indonesia, enabling them to increase their competency in teaching English using communicative, learner-centered methods and enhance the learning experience and English fluency of Indonesian students.
