Echelon at Kuala Lumpur education show in support of the London College of Professional Training

October 20, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
The programme is being demonstrated by the London College of Professional Training (LCPT) in support of its Life Long Learning Teaching Qualification.

LCPT is the first UK college to pilot the new suite of teaching qualifications (QTLS) for Edexcel by distance learning, employing interactive, intranet-based teaching and learning modules that use video to highlight examples of best practice in teaching and learning.
Sponsored by the UK Department of Trade and Industry, BESA KL takes place on 23rd and 24th October 2007 at the Kuala Lumpar Conference Centre and is attended by Heads and teachers, local government, education business providers, agents and distributors.

LCPT was chosen to represent the British Accreditation Council and Edexcel because of its reputation as a centre of excellence in the lifelong learning sector. The LCPT stand is shared with the QCA and York University.

Echelon’s ‘Teaching Best Practice’ provides interactive, intranet-based teaching and learning resources for both new lecturers to build classroom skills and for existing teachers as part of their continuous professional development (CPD).

Using video footage of classroom scenarios, the programmes cover topics such as student punctuality; classroom management; adapting tasks to different level skills; integrating key skills into the curriculum; information learning technology (ILT); ‘The Wow Factor’, a teacher summary of what makes for the optimum learning experience and conducting student assessments.

Each programme is accompanied by a free downloadable workbook that summarises the learning points covered.

Programmes are suited to team discussion, reflective practice, independent and active learning, college planning and development days, area learning days, centre days and cross-college days and by advanced practitioners for one-to-one support.

The latest programme to be added to the ‘Teaching Best Practice’ series, ‘Student Assessment’ discusses issues concerning the implementation of initial, formative and summative assessment.

Teaching Best Practice is available for purchase or licence. Full details and opportunity to download a sample workbook at or contact Hugh Garai at
