More overseas studies!

Overseas Study Award for Selected Post-graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) Trainees

46. To enhance the pedagogy of selected teachers, the Committee proposes a three-month study award for selected PGDE trainees who have shown outstanding performance in their course of study. The overseas stint could be at reputable overseas teacher training institutes or schools in EL-speaking countries such as New Zealand and Australia. The three-month stint in a different language learning context will provide the opportunity for these trainee teachers to expand their repertoire of pedagogical approaches.

Ooh. Something to work toward during NIE. No idea if I'll be able to get it, but oh well, it's still a long time from now, anyway.

hm. I know singapore's meritocratic and all, but do you think they'll really give it to overseas scholars again? or practise positive discrimination and give it to non-scholars?
