Training of Trainer (TOT) Program in Provinces of Hau Giang, Long An, Dak Nong, Vinh Long and Can Tho City

Implementing the plan of teacher training in 2014 of the National Foreign Languages Project 2020, SEAMEO RETRAC collaborated with Departments of Education and Training in Hau Giang, Long An, Dak Nong and Vinh Long provinces and Can Tho City to conduct professional training courses for more than 330 core teachers of English from early November to December 21 of the year 2014.

The key content of the program consisted of 03 modules: English for teaching (EfT), techniques for language teaching (TfT) and ICT in language instruction. The program was the combination between face-to-face learning and online self-study through online websites: Tech4Teach and MyELT designed by SEAMEO RETRAC and Cengage Learning. Furthermore, all teachers taking the EfT participated in the assessment at the end of the course and will achieve a certificate issued by American Education Testing Service (ETS). The course helped the teachers enhance their teaching skills and techniques not only for their own teaching, but also for successful conduct of training workshops on these related topics for their institutions' teachers upon the completion of the course. SEAMEO RETRAC is collaborating with other DOETs to implement this program in 2015.
