Recently Australia-Pacific Technical College (APTC) tutors in Papua New Guinea (PNG) attended two weeks’ training in the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE).
“This training in teaching delivery will enable the tutors to further develop their skills and knowledge to effectively deliver teaching practices in their own classes and workshops,” said Rick Harper of the APTC’s Port Moresby campus.
In-service training is an important means of maintaining high standards in any field. At the APTC where the quality of teaching and training is of international repute, it is indispensable.
Chris Prince, the TAE teacher said, “The tutors participating in the training represent the full range of APTC courses taught in PNG. There’s Peter Agua from Carpentry, Nanai Sinemaue from Cookery, Billy Apini from Electrical, Veira Waide from English Language, Literacy and Numeracy, Havosa Yasiva from Fitting and Machining and Vagi Daera from Hospitality”.
The tutors will undergo a further two weeks of training in July. “Their training will prepare them for National Trainer roles,” says Rick. “Their qualifications and industry currency will place these tutors as leaders of Technical Training in PNG.”
