Unique educational methodology to be launched in Kazakhstan

Unique educational methodology is being launched in Kazakhstan. The methodology is focused on supporting teachers’ leadership.

An international project developed by leading British experts was tested in Kazakhstan for the first time in 2016.

In two academic years, the concept of David Frost who had worked on it for over 30 years has been piloted successfully in eight schools in the republic.

This year an innovative program will be launched in 16 schools of Nur-Sultan, Almaty, Taraz and Kokshetau.

Experts opined that work on leadership development of teachers includes testing new technologies as well as analytical and creative approaches in the system of modern teaching.

In total, the educational program of the methodology is based on participation of the teachers in seminars, conferences, consultations and interschool meetings.

This will be a long term project. The contest organizers and school principles can monitor the people who went through the training and see the results.

“It is our pleasure to know that these teachers will further continue to teach other young teachers of our school,” said School-Lyceum Principal, Kuralai Mukusheva.

With the help of this methodology, each student will learn to move forward, self-realize and self-improve from teacher. This is a non-leadership role of a teacher and this is why this project is unique in Kazakhstan.

According to the developers of the concept, the Teacher Leadership program is currently being successfully applied in 15 countries including New Zealand, Portugal, Macedonia, Turkey, Greece, Moldova and other European countries.

Next year, the pilot projects are planned to be launched in Malaysia, Ireland and Qatar.
