News ArchiveDecember 15, 2014

National Center for Teacher Professional Development organized training sessions for 20 English Language Teachers in Great Britain.

Teachers, organized into two groups, each had 2 weeks trainings in London”Wimbledon School of England” and in Nottingham “New College Nottingham”. The trainings were carried out by foreign experts. Both schools organized the trainings specifically for Georgian teachers considering their needs. The trainings sessions mostly concentrated on:

New methods of language teaching;

  • Boosting student motivation;
  • Teaching practices among mixed ability and large classes;
  • Georgian teachers also had the opportunity to attend the classes of their British colleagues and reflect on the practices later.

Teachers had been selected from Tbilisi and different regions of Georgia based on prior developed criteria.

Teachers will have the chance to share the experiences with their colleagues upon their return to Georgia.
