Oman - 169 English teachers take knowledge test

One hundred and sixty nine Omani primary and secondary school English teachers attended a graduation ceremony at the residence of the British ambassador to the Sultanate on Monday after completing their Teacher Knowledge Essentials programme.

The programme was run by the British Council from September 2012 until April 2013 and the participants wrote the internationally-recognised Cambridge Teaching Knowledge Test (TKT) examination. Officials from the Ministry of Education and the British Council, who contributed to the success of the collaborative project, were present on the occasion.

The TKT project provides Omani English teachers with a valuable professional development opportunity and an indication of their current level of teaching knowledge.
