New Zealand teaching showcased in Thailand
More than 400 English language teachers attended the opening ceremony of Brand’s Tutor Summer Camp, the largest private English language training camp for Thai secondary school English teachers, held in late June.
The teachers came from 60 provinces across Thailand to attend the four-day event, along with Chortip Pramoolpol, ENZ Marketing and Strategic Relations Manager – Thailand, and Karen Rutherford, Head of School of AUT International House.
The event provided teachers with new guidelines and teaching techniques to ensure their students get the most from their classes.
AUT conducted a training session showcasing the New Zealand teaching style, which Chortip said received overwhelmingly positive feedback.
“Teachers commented on how practical and hands-on it was."
"It helped tighten the education collaboration between New Zealand and Thailand and provided a great platform to raise awareness of us to the teachers and participating government agencies.”
AUT will also select and sponsor one teacher to receive one month of complimentary English language training.
The event was organised by Brand Suntory (Thailand) Co., Ltd in partnership with the Office of Basic Education Commission, Ministry of Education and Kasetsart University.
The Brand’s Tutor Summer Camp ran from 29 June to 1 August 2017.
