A group of Indonesian teachers are set to depart for Australia to undertake a new-study program, a press statement issued by the Australian Embassy in Jakarta has said.
The statement says 136 teachers will travel to Australia to study the Australian education system in a short course at the University of Melbourne. They will also undertake work placement in an Australian school and stay with a local family. The teachers will experience local teaching practices firsthand.
The three-week course will provide practical examples on how participants can implement these methods and share this material with their colleagues on their return to Indonesia.
In 2015, there were 19,300 Indonesian enrolled in Australian education institutions. Meanwhile, under the Australian government’s New Colombo Plan, in the last two years, 2,000 young Australians have lived, worked and studied in Indonesia.
