Program Description

The Jakarta English Language Teacher Training 2023 Program is a blended online and in-person teacher training program supporting English teachers in Indonesia to develop as professionals and teach English in English using learner-centered, communicative methods.

Through this program, World Learning aims to increase the capacity and effectiveness of English language teachers and teacher trainers 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. Peer Learning Hubs (PLH) 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. In this extension of the original ELTT Program, World Learning will support the professional development of five coaches, 40 teacher trainers, and 600 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.

In the final stage of the program, World Learning will host an Essential Skills in ELT and Teacher Training skill-building workshop for 75 program alumni, including teachers, trainers, and coaches, to help alumni apply their knowledge gained in both ELTeach modules. This six-day workshop will enable participants to plan, teach, and self-assess lessons using two lesson planning frameworks and communicative, learner-centered skills presented in the ELTeach Professional Knowledge for ELT course.
