Over the past few years, the Ministry of Education (MOE) in Singapore has made a concerted effort to improve the quality of education for all students.
From increasing the number of faculty to equipping classrooms and laboratories with cutting-edge technology, this government agency is working tirelessly to improve student outcomes.
One of MOE’s flagship initiatives is improving teacher training. In particular, it has launched several large-scale teacher training programmes over the past few years, aiming to equip new teachers with the skills and knowledge they need to help students achieve their best.
The institutes that have been selected to run these programmes include the National Institute of Education (NIE), Asia Research Institute (ARI), and Singapore Management University (SMU).
Apart from teacher training, MOE also runs targeted mentorship programmes for principals and vice-principals.
This programme provides them with hands-on experience in different aspects of schools such as global marketing, social media management, pupil assessment, and data analysis.
By utilising these resources and bolstering teacher training and mentorship programmes, MOE is working hard to improve educational outcomes for all students in Singapore.
Ministry of Education Singapore (MOES) is the national agency tasked with shaping and providing a world-class education system that meets the needs of our students and builds the nation.
