The final presentation for 25 Korean participating teachers in ‘Teaching Abroad for Global Competency Programme’ was held on 11 March 2016 at APCEIU.

At this final presentation, 10 Korean teachers who were dispatched to Germany, 5 Korean teachers who were dispatched to Singapore and 10 Korean teachers who were dispatched to Australia as well as their school principals and vice principals  attended. It was an opportunity for them to understand the purpose of this programme and  plan for future educational exchange activities. Officials from Metropolitan and Provincial Offices of Education, who were involved in selection process of the teachers, also attended to share the outcomes of the Korean teachers’ educational activities through this exchange programme.

‘Teaching Abroad for Global Competency Programme’ is an exchange programme and it dispatches Korean teachers abroad for 2 ~ 3 weeks to conduct educational activities through partnership with their matching teachers. Then those matching teachers from abroad are invited to Korea  to teach in Korean schools. The focus area of the educational activities varies for each country. The focus area is vocational education for Germany, NCS-based career education and multicultural education for Australia, and multicultural education for Singapore. With these focus areas, participating  teachers from each country will explore and learn each other’s educational systems.

Starting with German teachers in April, Singaporean teachers and Australian teachers will be invited to Korea in May and July respectively. They will have opportunities to co-teach with their Korean matching teachers and conduct their major curriculum subjects along with cultural lessons in the host schools in Korea.

Six Singaporean teachers dispatched to Korean schools for the first time this year, have completed their activities and returned home.
The Singaporean teachers were invited to Korea in order to participate in the 2014 ROK-SIN teacher exchange programme from 21 June to 4 July. This teacher exchange belongs to the 'Teaching Abroad for Global Competency’ programme funded by the MOE (Ministry of Education) of ROK with the purpose of enhancing participating teachers' global teaching capacity and improving the current practice of EIU.

After Singaporean teachers had their orientation along with cultural visits on the 22nd and 23rd of June, they were assigned to six host schools in Seoul, Pusan, Gyeonggi, Chungbuk, and Jeonbuk to teach Korean students for two weeks. The Korean teachers in the host schools were also dispatched to the Singaporean schools of the invited teachers this February and facilitated as co-teachers.
At the final presentation held on 2 July at the APCEIU, the Singaporean teachers shared different teaching activities including Singaporean cultural classes along with their individual subject classes. They responded positively to the programme they had participated in and thanked their host schools for their support.
