HCMC – With the goal of strengthening educational links and promoting cultural exchange, Education New Zealand (ENZ) is providing 20 fully-funded scholarships for Vietnamese teachers to take study courses under the New Zealand Global Competence Certificate and Teacher Training program.
The combined program will last for five weeks and will be delivered by lecturers from Massey University. This will be the second cohort of this program.
Thirty-five teachers of the program’s first cohort came from several ENZ partner schools in Vietnam. Participants have immersed themselves in a multicultural environment with 65 other teachers from New Zealand, South Korea and Indonesia.
The New Zealand Global Competence Certificate consists of 20 learning modules delivered on a virtual platform, with online classes connecting Vietnamese teachers with their New Zealand, Japanese and Thai counterparts.
The training involves various topics including teaching methods, correction techniques and creating a learning community.
Ben Burrowes, ENZ Regional Director – Asia, said that through this scholarship program, ENZ affirms its commitment to support Vietnam in achieving educational goals in the 21st century and building the capacity of teachers in both English language teaching and future skills.
Eligible candidates are Vietnamese teachers currently working at a high school, a university or an English center in Vietnam.
The program is conducted in English and participants are required to meet English-level equivalent to IELTS 6.0 or higher.
Applications for the program are open from now until September 5, 2021. The program will go on from October 11 until November 14.
