Quality Training for teachers and policy makers on the topic of Multilingual Education has always been a challenge. It is therefore good to note that a Certificate Course is under development in collaboration with Guwahati University.
The LEAD Community of Practice in India, in collaboration with the Dept. of Linguistics, Gauhati University, is in the process of developing a one year certificate course in MLE for current and future MLE practitioners. The plan is to have two face-to-face sessions with a practical component between. The current dates are as follows:
SESSION 1: 17-24 March, 2020
SESSION 2: 15-26 February, 2021LEAD Impact Asia has conducted similar courses in various parts of Asia, but this would be the first time to do so in India. For that reason the organisers request the wider education community to provide expressions of interest if this would be useful for you personally, or for your institution. Please let us know by filling out the survey form found here.
Troy Bailey, LEAD Community Coordinator writes: “Space would be limited, so let us know ASAP if this might be a part of your plans for 2020. Once we have a significant number of respondents we will provide more details about course fees and academic requirements.” For more info write to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is good news. I hope this indeed will take off. Spread the word!
