A series of events is underway with the aim of supporting English teachers in Ukraine to further develop their assessment knowledge when teaching young children English. The webinars will focus on the use of internationally recognised benchmarks for learning and assessing English, and how the world-famous Cambridge English Qualifications can be used to reach the highest standards in education.
The events are being organised by the Ministry of Education in Ukraine in collaboration with Cambridge Assessment English. They are part of the New Ukrainian School (NUS) Reform, a major project that aims to improve schools in Ukraine ensuring students are equipped with knowledge and skills for real life. The series kicked off in October with a look at how the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) is having an impact in primary school language classrooms. The CEFR is used all over the world as a benchmark for English language ability and Cambridge Assessment English was heavily involved in the early development of the standard.
‘Schools in Ukraine have faced tremendous challenges over the last two years and we’re delighted to be supporting this initiative to help upskill English teachers who are doing such a fantastic job.’ said Daryna Sizhuk, Business Development Manager for Ukraine. She continued: ‘We’ve focused much of the content of the webinars on assessment skills and the important role benchmarks play in measuring how well children are progressing in their English language studies. Our Cambridge English Qualifications for example are targeted at a particular level of CEFR, which is an internationally recognised benchmark for language ability. This means the Cambridge English Qualifications provide a clear focus for study programmes, with topics and tasks designed to reinforce the learning that students do in class. This approach helps to promote a positive impact on teaching and learning’.
During the series of webinars experts from Cambridge will also look at the importance of inclusive education and assessing children with disabilities, learning oriented assessment, and how to explain to parents how children are assessed. There will also be showcases on exam preparation and exam security. The series of nine webinars, which are already in full swing, will run until April 2022.
