Cognitus Academy Teacher Training Programme

Teachers form the foundation of our English programmes and are screened meticulously and trained rigorously before they enter the classrooms to teach.

Having been a teacher trainer at the National Institute of Education (NIE), Dr Daniel Chua has not only crafted a solid curriculum for our students, but also an effective training programme for our teachers.
