B.EdinTESLIPG-KPMTwinning withIPTA3rd Cycle
...is the name of our degree course.
B.Ed stands for Bachelor of Education as oppose to B. Tchg. which is the degree for IPG trainee teachers.
TESL is of course my course [LOL...] Teaching English as the Secondary Language.
IPG-KPM meanwhile means Institut Pendidikan Guru – Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia [Teachers’ Education Institute – Ministry of Education of Malaysia]
I know everyone knows what IPTA is. The university we will be twinned with is UiTM Puncak Alam is Shah Alam. If my mind serves me right, it is the Faculty of Education.
3rd Cycle self-explains right? We are the third batch, but definitely not the third batch of English trainee teachers in IPG Gaya. I think it shows that we are the third batch twinned with UiTM.
The thing that I regarded as disappointing is because we will be out of IPG Gaya [the system, not the campus itself], we will, sort of, separated from the rest of our fellow TESLians, those of SRs. We will not have SBE [school-base experience] and BIG [Bina Insan Guru]: two things that I’ve been looking forward to, but in the end, they’re not for us of SM.
What to do.
Let’s just rejoice that we’ll be in degree soon enough.
[By the way… Tomorrow is:
Band 4 or 5 or 6…. I’ll get you!]
