Preparing Senior High School Content Teachers for Bilingual Teaching

With the move towards bilingual education, there is a need to equip content teachers with confidence and competence to balance the use of English and their L1 in their teaching so that learners will be able to acquire both content and language proficiency at the same time. This professional development programme is specially customized for senior high school teachers to enhance their competence in the use of English for bilingual teaching. The programme aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • Develop content teachers’ confidence and competence in using subject-specific, generic academic and colloquial language within a language-for-schooling framework; 
  • Enhance content teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge of how to deliver content lessons with attention to learners’ academic and general language development; and
  • Equip content teachers with pedagogical knowledge and skills to integrate Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) approaches into their existing lesson plans.
