Klover Asia Conducts Curriculum Training
"It is easier to build up a child than it is to repair an adult."
Klover Asia is elated to have been awarded the opportunity to develop the curriculum of a local community literacy and numeracy programme to support disadvantaged primary school children. The developed curriculum will be delivered in over 10 programme centres across the central district of Singapore to students in the programme on a weekly basis. The curriculum comprises of two modules, Communications and Problem-Solving.
Last February, Klover Asia conducted a training session on the Communications module for the Lead Teachers and volunteers, key stakeholders for successful curriculum implementation. The 4-hour session provided participants with an overview of the newly-developed content and instructed them on the educational theories, framework and principles which underpin it. The Lead Teachers and volunteers experienced some of the activities planned for the students as a part of the new curriculum and they were guided through sample lesson packages for the different tiers of students too.
We are looking forward to conducting the next training session for the Problem-Solving module in July.
