Phoenix Academy is now recruiting candidates for the first DELTA to be offered in Perth for many years. The Institute for Teaching Excellence (ITE) is the Teacher Training division within Phoenix and will be conducting an 8-week course addressing all three DELTA modules early in 2014.
Phoenix’s Institute for Teaching Excellence is also conducting teacher training short courses for Chinese partner universities during the months of July and August 2013. Professors and lecturers from the South China Agricultural University in Guangzhou and the Shanghai Jianqiao University will travel to Perth to participate in customised programs that present best practise strategies for tertiary trainers.
In July and August ITE is also offering its first blended delivery program for the Qingdao Foreign Language School and Education Bureau of Chenyang. In this course, Phoenix trainers will deliver intensive training to 46 teachers in Qingdao followed by an 8-week online course with weekly webinar and concluding with the 46 teachers travelling to Perth for an intensive face-to-face course. It is believed to be the first time that a blended delivery TESOL Training model has been offered in China by an Australian institution.
During July, Phoenix trainers will also be conducting face to face delivery in China for the Beijing Normal University which will be followed by an on-line program incorporating weekly webinars.
In July and August, ITE will once again welcome a group of practising primary teachers from the Korean Government for an intensive TESOL course plus primary school placement program in Perth.
