Our Team of Trainers
We first introduced team-teaching in 2005, with the aim to reach out to more students without compromising quality. With standardized syllabi and teaching materials, students can benefit from having more than one trainer.
Our team comprises experienced teachers, most of them with more than 5 years of experience in teaching at tertiary level as well as being thoroughly versed in the most up-to-date teaching methodology and our standard syllabi. Our trainers are native speakers of the Indonesian language and are familiar with the Indonesian culture, which is accommodated in some of our teaching materials.
We continually update our materials from time to time, to ensure that they are contemporaneous with the latest development, and can meet even the more specific and wide-ranging requirements of our students.
