Teachers of the Centre have completed a training program on how to plan, run, and evaluate lessons. For professional development, one of the most cutting-edge strategies for teaching English was applied. The course, which was designed to prepare students for the applicable official Cambridge exams, was put together with the United Kingdom's support as part of the "English for Peacekeepers" project.
The British military attaché emphasized the increase of Kazakhstan's potential for maintaining peace as well as the implementation of the "English for peacekeepers" project. He noted that the Centre's teaching staff had received extensive training supported by the good final exam results.
According to Colonel Bauyrzhan Nigmetullin, Head of the Center, "Professional development of the teaching staff is a priority direction for the further development of the Peacekeeping Training Centre of the Ministry of Defense and the key to high-quality training of the national peacekeeping contingent in new conditions."
He also emphasized how important and consistent the classes within the "English for peacekeeping" project are to the professional growth of Kazakhstani teachers working in the Language Training Department of the Centre.
The parties also discussed the directions for further implementation of the project, in particular how to undertake advanced training programs for newly arrived teachers.
