Malaysian teachers will soon have greater access to Cambridge Professional Development Qualifications (PDQs) thanks to a new agreement between Cambridge International and HELP University in Kuala Lumpur.
At the recent signing ceremony Professor Datuk Dr Paul Chan, President and Vice-Chancellor of HELP University highlighted their commitment to improving the standards of teaching and learning in private and international schools in the country: “This agreement reflects our strong commitment to teaching quality at our international schools and tertiary institutions. There is a large number of international and private schools in Malaysia running the Cambridge International curriculum, and we hope to be able to upskill the teachers by offering the Cambridge Professional Development Qualifications.”
For the first time in Malaysia, HELP University will support the delivery of the Cambridge International Award in Teaching and Learning, an introductory professional development programme that provides a rigorous foundation in teaching and learning. It is designed for both new and more experienced teachers who may need preparation for teaching in a Cambridge school.
Dr Ben Schmidt, Regional Director Southeast Asia & Pacific, Cambridge International said: “Demand for international education is growing in Malaysia and across the entire ASEAN region. That is why we are pleased to introduce the Cambridge International Award in Teaching and Learning in collaboration with HELP University. It provides a strong foundation in classroom practice for those who wish to pursue a promising and satisfying career in international education.”
