THE English@CLiC pilot programme involves the participation of teachers from various primary and secondary schools in Sentul.
This corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative by Sentul Raya Sdn Bhd is in collaboration with its partners, the Education Ministry and the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), to help uplift the English language proficiency of the Sentul community.
The main objectives are to upskill English teachers with 21st pedagogical skills and eventually improve the proficiency of the students in English.
The bigger vision is to enhance the employment opportunity of the younger generation in Sentul and and uplift the socio economic status of the Sentul community which impacts 420,000 urban poor families and over 20,000 students.
The inaugural programme saw the participants being guided on teaching tips and 21st pedagogical skills by expert trainers from Institut Pendidikan Guru Kampus Bahasa Antarabangsa as well as the use of the Virtual Learning Environment platform.
The English@CLiC programme is a workshop that focuses on uplifting English and culminates with an awards ceremony for the teachers, schools and students taking part.
Prizes will be handed out to schools, teachers and students who perform best throughout the programme. The grand prize will be the RM200,000 Frog Connected Classrooms, intranet and online classrooms courtesy of FrogAsia and YTL Foundation.
CLiC has been acknowledged as a successful ‘blue ocean strategy’ collaboration between the private and public sectors, with the vision to help Malaysia become a country with high income.
