We are recruiting for experienced and enthusiastic teaching/training professionals to work on an exciting new project which is in conjunction with the Ministry of Education in Malaysia starting on 28 December 2012 and 21 January 2013.

This is an excellent career development opportunity for Teacher Trainers to broaden their academic and professional skills.

You will also play a part in monitoring and supporting their ongoing professional development.
