Malaysia: 1,022 teachers take Cambridge Placement Test

Malaysia's Daily Express reports on the country's latest measure to improve the standards of English language education.

A total of 1,022 English teachers are now undergoing the Cambridge Placement Test (CPT) in their respective districts in Sabah.

Education Director Datuk Jame Alip (pic) said on Wednesday the course is aimed to improve their English skills and teaching pedagogy methods.

"They are being trained by the British Council in their respective districts," he said.

CPT is a course introduced by the Education Ministry with the collaboration with the British Council in a bid to boost the implementation of the Education Blueprint.

Deputy Prime Minister cum Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin in June last year announced that 9,000 teachers will be selected for the CPT course nationwide.

A special entity called Education Implementation and Performance unit (Padu) has been set up to monitor and ensure the success of this initiative.
