Five reasons to live in Hangzhou

Birthplace of Longjing tea (Dragon Well tea) and home to ecommerce powerhouse Alibaba, the emerging tech hub and capital of eastern China’s Zhejiang province is also known for its beautiful landscapes and traditional silk industry.Living in Hangzhou

Culture by the water

Situated in the city centre, Hangzhou’s West Lake is both a breathtakingly scenic spot and a cultural landmark. Famous for its influence on Chinese poetry, paintings and garden design, the Unesco World Heritage Site’s significance is such that it features on the back of the Rmb1 banknote. Locals like to cycle down the Su and Bai causeways, taking in the gorgeous views of the water, mountains, bridges and pagodas.

Known as “the kidney of Hangzhou” for its cleansing properties, the Xixi National Wetland Park, a 20-minute drive from West Lake, is a conglomeration of ponds, lakes, swamps and villages that dates back to the Han dynasty (third century AD). With a vivid cultural heritage, the wetlands play host to one of the biggest dragon boat festivals in south China every June and continue to be a home to the ancient crafts of silk farming and book engraving.
Two-wheeled adventures

The city has the largest public bicycle-sharing system in the world, with five times the number of bikes in London despite having only a slightly larger population, at 9.47m. Bike rental is as easy as downloading an app and scanning a code. A single ride costs Rmb1, a mere $0.14.
Growing tech hub

Hangzhou is home to 26 unicorn companies (privately owned companies valued at more than $1bn) and 105 companies valued at more than $100m. With these companies mostly focused on ecommerce, IT and internet financing, Hangzhou is at the forefront of China’s drive to develop its digital economy and tech and innovation capacities.

The city is fast becoming one of the biggest innovation centres globally for artificial intelligence and robotics, with the Zhejiang government developing several IT centres — such as the Future Sci-Tech City — as part of a five-year plan unveiled last year.

The district government has partnered with Chinese ecommerce giant Alibaba to foster a business environment conducive to local start-ups in Future Sci-Tech City. It hosts Alibaba’s headquarters and other fast-growing start-ups, including AI specialist Rokid.

In a similar vein, Hangzhou’s fintech capital Xixi Valley Internet Finance Town now hosts more than 250 companies, including Zhima, Mogujie and Ant Financial Services. The Hangzhou Blockchain Industrial Park opened in April this year, with $1.6bn of funding announced for blockchain start-ups, 30 per cent of which was supplied by the Yuhang district government.
Time for tea

Hangzhou is home to one of China’s favourite teas, Longjing tea (Dragon Well tea), a variety of pan-roasted green tea known for its aromatic flavour and health benefits.

With Longjing tea fields located a 20-minute drive from the city centre in Meijiawu and Longjing tea villages, Hangzhou residents have easy access to a wide variety of premium quality but affordable tea leaves at local markets such as the Hangzhou Jiefang Road Non-staple Food Tea Market. A popular weekend pastime is to hike through the sprawling tea fields and enjoy a meal with freshly picked tea at one of the village tea houses.
Silk sensations

Silk has been one of the cornerstones of Hangzhou’s economy since the Tang Dynasty (from the seventh to 10th centuries), when the fabric was reserved for the imperial family, and the Southern Song Dynasty (10th to 13th centuries), when the silk industry began to thrive and Hangzhou earned its moniker the Capital of Silk.

Today, Hangzhou remains famous for producing high-quality silk and satin. Locals visit Silk City, one of China’s biggest wholesale and retail markets for silk, to pick up fabrics, scarves, garments and handicraft that are also exported across the globe.

You may have heard studying abroad in Shanghai referred to as “non-traditional,” but with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, why go with traditional?Moving to Shanghai

One thing is consistent among students returning from study abroad in Shanghai: it defied their expectations. Shanghai, a city with the 2nd largest population (yes, the size of the city can handle its 24 million people, plus tourists!) is teeming with possibilities. It’s a dynamic metropolitan city with its own unique pulse, which makes it difficult to define unless you experience it for yourself.

In celebration of the IES Abroad Shanghai Center’s 10th anniversary, we’re revealing the best kept secrets—with the help of our students who’ve been there, done that—of what it’s really like to study abroad in Shanghai. With the help of our Ambassadors from our Shanghai Economy, Business & Society, Engineering, and Summer Internship programs, we’re dishing out why you should consider Shanghai as your study abroad destination:
1. It has food from all 23 provinces in China…and the rest of the world.
Let one thing be clear: Shanghai is a foodie’s paradise. Forget what you learned from Chinese food in the States, this city attracts a diverse selection of the best flavors from all over the country (and world!) for its hungry urbanites. There’s something for everyone, such as delicious xiǎolóngbāo (soup-filled dumplings), street noodles prepared before your eyes, or, for the more adventurous, the local’s favorite–stinky tofu. What’s more, you can experience this wide variety of food all in one place: the popular Yunnan Road. This street has specialty cuisine from all 23 provinces in China –in just one place! An added bonus? Our Center is right next door. Grabbing delicious snacks between classes has never been so easy, and delicious.
2. It’s the second-largest city in the world (really!)
To put it into perspective, Shanghai is about eight times larger than New York City, and has at least five million more people living within its city limits. A city this big means more of everything: more to do, more to see, more activities, events, and life everywhere you look. “I knew Shanghai was big, but I didn’t grasp how big until I was there,” says Ryan D.(IES Abroad Shanghai Engineering, Spring 2018 | University of Tulsa). A city that big can be overwhelming, but study abroad gives you the chance to pick up and move there knowing you’ll have a built-in cohort of fellow U.S. students, and you won’t need to worry about securing safe and central housing. Consider it handled!
3. It is a multicultural melting pot.
On par with New York City or London, modern Shanghai society has different cultures woven throughout. Surprised? Shanghai has always been a meeting point of East and West, and continues to be a confluence point of cultures today. Throughout its history, Shanghai has been a major port for Europe and Asia. At points, it has been occupied by European and American concessions and also housed a community of Jewish refugees during the war. Paired with modern industry, this unique past set the stage for the global Shanghai you see today. Don’t let the cultural collage intimidate you, though! “If a student is ever craving a piece of home, there is ample opportunity to hop on the Metro and go to a more Western area of the city or find a cool burger joint for some American grub,” says Lexi K.
4. It’s home to two of the top universities in China, where you can take courses in English with Chinese students.
Many Chinese students start studying at a young age to get into a university in the prestigious C9 League, also known as China’s Ivy League. Both of our partner universities, Fudan University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University – Joint Institute (SJTU-JI) both are in the C9 League and welcome IES Abroad students to take classes. Take the opportunity to experience stellar academics without a language barrier, and make local friends in the classroom while you’re at it. The Shanghai Center plans a handful of events to help you engage with local students, including an SJTU buddy program, basketball games, BBQ with language partners, KTV Karaoke nights, and more!
5. It has an amazing public transit system, but it’s also one of the best places to just truly wander.
Our Ambassadors all agreed that their favorite activity was exploring the new city that was their home. Shanghai is well connected by metro, less than $1 USD will get you almost anywhere in the city in less than an hour! “When I got comfortable with the subway system, I used to pick a random stop to get off at and just check out the area,” says Kameelah S.T. (IES Abroad Shanghai Economy, Business & Society, Fall 2017 | Spelman College). “I found a ton of cool restaurants, shops, and parks that way!” Bike sharing is also wildly popular in Shanghai, giving you more ways to see new places, or change up your commute. Develop a relationship with your new home as you stumble upon new neighborhoods, restaurants, museums, and friendly Shanghai residents. Where are some of the best places to roam? Our Ambassadors recommend Yu Gardens, Jing’an Temple, and, of course, the Bund as a start. Follow Will Kyaw, our Spring 2018 Correspondent, on his beautifully recorded journey through the Shanghai Metro as he and his friends explore the city in “Unexpectedly ended up in a Slaughterhouse- Shanghai VLOG.”
6. It stands out on a résumé.
In the past 20 years, China has positioned itself to be a major player in almost every industry. This means companies from all over the globe have some connection with China and are on the lookout for employees with experience in this market. While abroad, practice your networking vocabulary during a language class, visit major factories and ports in the city as you study supply chain management, or even take on a full-time summer internship in Shanghai. Gaining internship experience, studying at a Chinese university, as well as practicing Mandarin in the commercial and financial capital of China are sure to make your résumé stand out from the rest.
7. It has everything a big city can offer, but is college-student-budget friendly.
There’s a reason Shanghai was number one on our list of Best Places to Study Abroad for the Cost-Savvy Student. Not only are our study abroad programs in Shanghai some of the most affordable, but the cost of living compared to the United States always surprises students. For example, a meal at a dining hall can cost only ~10 RMB ($1.48 USD)–compare that to your on-campus meal plan! You’ll also learn the art of bargaining – consider everything sold in a market or on the street open for a discussion. It may seem daunting at first, but once you get the hang striking a bargain in Shanghai you’ll feel like a local. What’s better than a souvenir? A souvenir you were able to haggle for in Mandarin (or maybe just non-verbally, which is also a skill)!
8. It’s more than just skyscrapers—be prepared for art and architecture that will blow your mind!
Shanghai’s global influences and traditional Chinese culture collide to make this city a feast for the eyes. Eastern and Western, as well as old and new architecture coexist side by side. The beautiful Jing’an Temple is nestled directly amid the hustle and bustle of skyscrapers while an instagrammable art-deco slaughterhouse-turned-shopping center (1933 Slaughterhouse) stands by the old Jewish Ghetto. Walking around the Bund may remind you of Europe while ultra-modern skycrapers like the China Pearl Tower sparkle from just across the river. Shanghai is also home to a vibrant arts scene with museums big and small throughout, such as student favorites like the Shanghai Museum, Yuzmuseum’s famous Rain Room, and the Shanghai Urban Planning Museum. Read about Lexi stumbling upon the latter two in one of her blogs, “Wandering in Shanghai”.
9. It allows you to use your Chinese student visa as a ticket to explore one of the most biodiverse countries in the world.
China is more diverse than you think, both in ethnic groups and biodiversity. Imagine taking in snow-capped mountains, beaches, terraced hills, deserts, and river-valleys…without even leaving the country. Shanghai is widely connected by trains and buses that are safe, easy, and fun to take as you zip around the country. To match the geographical variety, adventuring on weekend trips with your program or on your own with friends will expose you to people from the 56 distinct ethnic groups that make up China. With so many people and places to see in China alone, your study abroad bucket need not involve crossing any borders; exploring China’s wide-ranging provinces will be challenge enough!

10. It is home to our local center staff, and they’ll be there to help you make the most of Shanghai.
If this list has you excited, or maybe just a little overwhelmed, here’s the cherry on top: since we’ve been in Shanghai for 10 years, we know a thing or two! You’ll get the necessary and relevant vocabulary right from orientation, followed by in-depth language classes that will allow you to comfortably maneuver life in your new city. “The language class teachers are often very willing to tailor the lessons to what you want to learn, so don’t be afraid to ask them,” Lucy S. (IES Abroad Shanghai Engineering – Spring 2017 | Lehigh University) advises. Course excursions and field trips will take you outside of the city’s bubble to spots you may have never heard of, such as nearby water towns like Hangzhou for canal rides, or on a breathtaking air rail journey in the mountains of Huangshan. You’ll take relevant courses with local instructors who are experts in their fields, and who don’t mind taking time to chat after class or recommend a new restaurant. As the semester rolls by, you’ll pass through Shanghai each day knowing more and more about what makes this city tick, growing from your classes, and what you’ve experienced yourself!

Summary: Besides the swimming program, Wellington College China also focuses on other sports and activities, such as football, tennis, gymnastics, skateboarding, kung fu, basketball, golf and others.

Shanghai, China, November 5, 2019 – Sports and physical activities are very important for a child’s overall growth and development. This is the reason why Wellington College China focuses a lot on sporting activities of their pupils, besides the academic programs. Children can enroll in different sporting programs as per their interest. The school provides opportunities in basketball, football, golf, gymnastics, kung fu, skateboarding, swimming, tennis and others. They have the complete facilities for pupils to engage in a sporting activity with fun and safety.

For example, the school has introduced the Children swimming in Shanghai program that is aimed at improving the swimming abilities of the children. At the same time, they are given opportunity to groom up as a professional swimmer. According to the spokesperson of the Wellington College China, their swimming academy could be equally helpful for both beginners as well as advanced swimmers. The academy is led by Grace Wang, who is the former competitive swimmer. As a qualified swimming coach, she is available to offer her guidance to children who want to become professional swimmers in the future. Grace starts her training with the basic swimming lessons and gradually tries to improve the swimming capabilities of kids.

According to Grace, she first tries to make children comfortable and confident in the water environment. At the Children swimming in Shanghai Academy, children are taught breathing techniques to help stay calm while in water. With their proper leg-focused movement, beginners can learn to swim with confidence. The swimming academy has different swimming programs with 10 sessions and 15 sessions each, respectively. The classes are held on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Pupils can choose from morning, afternoon and evening sessions. Each swimming session is designed in a manner to gradually improve swimming abilities of the kids.

During the swimming sessions at the Children swimming in Shanghai Academy, every pupil learns swimming under the personal guidance of Grace Yang. The swimming training program is planned affordable, so that pupils can explore their swimming abilities and can become physically fit, besides achieving an academic excellence. The Wellingtonian principle focuses on the complete growth of its pupils and this is the reason why the Wellington College China maintains all types of sporting facilities at their premises. The spokesperson of the College reveals that students happily participate in these sporting activities. Sports like swimming and skateboarding are very popular among young children. The seats of the swimming academy are filling fast, and parents need to support their child’s sporting spirit, which will enable them to grow as a complete human being.

Body: The process of making judgments on what pupils know and can do is fundamental in education. The good teachers should be good at gathering evidence to inform judgments on pupil progress and development, which then shapes the learning opportunities subsequently provided for pupils. Wellington College China pointed out that frequent and formative assessment best informs teacher practice and creates the best conditions for learning, in both monolingual and bilingual contexts.
Making effective and accurate judgments on what pupils know and can do is challenging and often comprises a balance between achieving validity and reliability in the evidence gathered versus the “do-ability” of the assessment. Moreover, standardized assessments can inform the summative judgments of what pupils know and can do. These are standard practices about teacher training for early years or nursery education in established education systems.

Collecting evidence of learning and development in a bilingual context is fundamentally more complex than monolingual systems. Validity, reliability and accuracy are hampered through the process of externalizing mental operations in a second language. Moreover, relevant standardised assessments for Chinese and English bilingual education are few and far between. This renders the act of judging what pupils know and can do difficult, impairing the capacity of a teacher to precisely define next steps in learning for pupils.
How to support teacher training for early years or nursery education in bilingual schools?
Firstly, there must be absolute clarity on assessment and its use. This is supported by utilising the following four principles of assessments:
1. Purpose
It is essential that there is clarity in the purpose of assessment; what is being assessed, why is it important and how will it advance learning for the pupils?
2. Validity
In its simplest form, validity in terms of assessment can be defined as: does the assessment measure what the teacher intends for its measure?
3. Reliability
For an assessment to be reliable, it must be reproducible. That is, if what one child knows and can do with fractions is judged to meet age related expectations, the judgment made on other children in the class or across the year group must be consistently similar.
4. Value
Valid and reliable assessment only becomes effective when it is used to advance learning. How the outcome of the assessment is communicated and used by the learner determines the value of assessment.

Wellington College China employs the following three actions to make assessment effective for teacher training for early years or nursery:

1.Design
It is essential that the teacher is clear on what learning and development entails so that assessment practices can be purposefully designed.
2. Triangulation
It is essential to ensure validity to triangulate assessment approaches. For instance, drawing evidence from a range of assessment approaches; e.g. tests, observations, open-ended projects and conferencing with pupils. Each approach can be undertaken in both Chinese and English.
3. Moderation
The act of defining what evidence best represents differing levels of performance in what pupils know and can do is essential to ensure reliability. Moderation by comparing judgments between teachers in or between schools to ensure consistency and accuracy in assessment judgment is essential.
Effective approaches to developing effective assessment practices is one of four themes that feature in the Inspiring Learning Conference led by the Institute of Learning in Shanghai on the 19th and 20th October 2019 and will be led by Professor Rob Coe, a world leader in assessment.

When Thien Y arrives to an alleyway in downtown Ho Chi Minh City, she brings her whole family. Uncles, aunts and cousins crowd the lane, dodging clotheslines and noodle soup stands.Hair vendors

Meanwhile, a New Yorker sets up shop just inside an open doorway, taking out a set of scales, zip ties, some scissors and ziplock bags.

Thien Y is one of the Vietnamese women supplying Dan Choi’s fair-trade hair company, Remy New York. She’s an 18-year-old student from the countryside in her first year of university.”I want to use the money from selling my hair for my tuition, rent and food,” she explains.

Dan pulls up a stool and unties her hair, sending waves of thick, black silk down her back.Hair like Thien Y’s is in high demand, with an ever-growing number of women, and increasingly men, using hair extensions in their daily lives.The global hair extension market was worth US$2 billion in 2017 ($2.76 billion). It’s predicted to hit US$7 billion by 2028.

Ariana Grande has been credited with a surge in sales of fake ponytails while Nicki Minaj’s floor-length extensions have inspired copycats. Some big Hollywood names, such as Jessica Simpson and Kylie Jenner, have even opened their own wig and extension lines.

Meanwhile, social media influencers are being paid by extension companies to post “hair transformations” on Instagram.It’s an affordable transformation for many, with a full head of extensions costing Australian customers about $160.

So where is all this hair coming from?Dan is on a mission to offer women a fair price for their hair and open up economic opportunities for them and their families.But outside of his fair-trade business, things aren’t so rosy.Most hair extension companies keep their supply chains hidden, so the brokers sourcing hair operate in the shadows, with little to no regulation.

Brokers typically target struggling regions where women will sell their hair for whatever they can get.Most hair is sourced in Asia, from women like Thien Y.”It’s mostly processed in China,” says Dan. “The buyers will go to South America, India, Vietnam, buy the hair, then process it and make it into whatever.”In other cases, hair is sourced from Indian Hindu temples, where female pilgrims shave their heads in worship as part of a religious ceremony, referred to as tonsuring. The temples tonsure thousands of women a day.

But sometimes traders simply take hair, whether that means forcibly shaving it from the heads of Russian prisoners or stealing it in places as innocuous as shopping centres.”I was held down by a gang of men who hacked at my hair,” one young Indian woman told The Observer.

“I know other women who have been blackmailed and threatened to shave their own heads, in some cases their husbands have received money for their hair and ordered their wives to have their heads shaved.”

While binge-watching season 3 of Stranger Things, many questions like — how does Mrs. Wheeler aka Cara Buono‘s perfectly bold, 80’s eye makeup stay put after a dip in the pool — might arise.cara make up yang natural
Amy Forsythe, the series’ makeup artist, revealed that she created the colorful look on Buono’s character, Karen Wheeler, for her poolside flirt scene with lifeguard-turned-Mind Flayer-host, Billy Hargrove (Dacre Montgomery). The look had viewers’ heads turning when it barely budged after she went underwater during a scene in the first episode.
One secret, Forsythe told Vulture, was leveraging the use of setting sprays and primers in multiple layers, as well as waterproof mascara because she “didn’t want [Cara] looking messy.”
“If the eye shadow went down a notch from going under, I was okay with that, since we could always put more on between takes. But the rest of the face had to be intact,” she said.For the actual eye shadow — a blend of bright colors perfect for the aesthetic that embodied the summer of 1985 — Forsythe and other makeup artists used mostly MAC palettes and relied on that fact that Buono “barely goes under the water” for her pool scene.
“We wanted to see what would organically happen as far as how the makeup stays,” she said — and luckily, her team’s wish was granted.
“It’s not as fake as it looks!” Forsythe said of the makeup in the dripping scene where Karen and Billy share a flirty exchange about setting up a rendezvous that never comes to fruition. “The colors that we used are very vibrant, but to make it look that high-pigmented, we had to pack it on a little bit thicker than what we’re used to.”
“You do see a little bit of water going through her cheeks. I love that!” she raved to Vulture. “You see a layer there that she puts on.”Forsythe said she “wanted Cara to have the most color” of the women she sat poolside with, who all got gussied up on the daily just to wait for the moment a shirtless Billy would walk out from the locker rooms to take up his post at the lifeguard stand.
“We have a ton of research that we pull before the show starts. We had TV Guides and cosmetic ads and movie posters and magazine clippings,” she said explaining the inspiration behind Karen’s look.
Luckily, that specific bit of makeup magic only had to last a short amount of time in the episode.
The makeup guru concluded, “The great thing with Cara’s character is we got to do something cool with her because it was a temporary moment, not something we have to carry through the whole show.”

Cara Delevingne is continuing on her mission to master the color spectrum. For Wednesday’s London premiere of Carnival Row—the forthcoming fantasy series in which Delevingne stars as fae Vignette Stonemoss—makeup artist Lisa Eldridge decorated the actress’s glacial gaze in a collage of color made bolder by its multi-faceted application.cara make up pemula

Whereas Delevingne’s last rainbowed look centered on a two-tone pressing of purple and tangerine, her most recent eye-encasing palette featured a quartet of hues, pink at the inner corners giving way to a diffusion of yellow and orange, a daub of deep red pulled along the lower lash line. Yet another stylized updo accompanied the makeup moment, gelled sides and a bit of volume at the crown leading to a sleek twist secured by a sleek hair slide. Just add a strategic showing of skin (and ink), punkish earrings, and a dusting of petal pink blush, and you have yet another interpretation of a pixie’s sensibilities; one based in reality, and entirely accessible—even to mere mortals.

For some actors, their character’s defining beauty is a natural fit. Cara Delevingne’s piece-y brown pixie worked perfectly, for example, in the trailer for forthcoming neo-noir fantasy Carnival Row, in which the super stars as a fae—or a pixie. For last night’s Los Angeles premiere, though, Delevingne took a pretty, colorful approach that spoke more to the show’s whimsical genre than its moody cinematography.

The red carpet saw Delevingne exchanging character Vignette Stonemoss’s mussed brunette for a twisted blonde ponytail that was wholly her own, with parted segments at the crown bedecked in purple and poppy barrettes matched to her galactic bloom of a Iris van Herpen dress. Also coordinated was Delevingne’s gaze, which centered on a duet of Dior eyeshadows—celestial lavender across the lids, tangerine edged along the lower lash line—that brought updo, gown, and makeup into one eye-catching infusion. A dusting of blush and selection of silver earrings acted as worthy finishers, the look a visual ode to all things ethereal. Because if you spend enough time enmeshed in a fantastic world, the spirit is likely to rub off on you.

IMPORTANCE OF IMPROVING TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAMMES IN INDONESIA

Teacher competence and professionalism play an important role in the success of student learning. As long as the government does not prioritise improving the quality of teachers or mapping the competence of teachers, it is difficult to imagine that the quality of education in Indonesia will improve.Internationally recognised teacher training programmes

One of the evaluation tools used in measuring teacher competence in Indonesia is the Teacher Competence Test (UKG). This test assesses mastery of pedagogic competence; the ability of teachers to manage a class and prepare learning strategies for students; professional competence; teachers’ mastery of the material; and the ability to evaluate learning.

Based on the results of the 2015 UKG Test, the average teacher competence scores from primary to high school are quite alarming. Nationally, the national average teacher scores are 40.14 (primary school), 44.16 (middle school), and 45.38 (high school). These scores are below the minimum standard set for the year, which was 55. Last year, the minimum standard was raised to 75.

Although the UKG cannot be the only indicator of teacher competence, its result still indicates that many teachers in Indonesia have not attained the minimum competence required to facilitate quality learning—in spite of the fact that prospective teachers must attend a professional education programme for one year after completing undergraduate education.

In a study done by Research on Improving Systems of Education (RISE) Programme in Indonesia in 2018, my colleagues and I found that only 12.43 percent of primary school teachers thought they had mastered literacy and 21.27 percent thought they had mastered numeracy. Last year, this study conducted a self-perception survey of 360 primary school teachers—graduates of Primary School Teacher Education who attended the Teacher Professional Education (PPG) Programme for one year, in-class—in seven universities in Java that hosted education programme. Teachers who participated in the survey had had teaching experience of six months to five years. They are a sample of 2,449 primary school teachers across Indonesia who participated in the programme at 43 universities.

If teachers are not competent in teaching literacy and numeracy at the primary level, it is not surprising that the achievement of Indonesian students in various national and international assessment programmes is in the bottom rank. In the 2015 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), for instance, the average math score of Indonesian students was 386--below the average math score of students from 72 PISA participating countries, which was 490.

What the government has done to improve teacher competence

In the current system, both beginner and experienced teachers take the same development and training programme with types of training that often overlap.

To improve teacher competence, the government organises Teacher Professional Education (PPG) and Continuing Professional Development (PKB) programmes. By participating in those additional education programmes, teachers will get the opportunity to learn the various competences needed to become professional educators.

In 2017, the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education designed two types of PPG based on the targeted groups: pre-service and in-service PPG programme (PPG prajabatan and PPG dalam jabatan, respectively).

The only way for a teacher to obtain a professional educator certificate is to attend the PPG programme. PPG displaces the educator certification programme, which uses portfolio collection or teacher professional education and training (PLPG). Teachers will undergo workshops and internships at a school by making use of their pedagogical competence, content knowledge, communication skill, and character development as professional educators.

The two-semester pre-service PPG programme is intended for novice teacher candidates or inexperienced teachers, and is carried out in-class. Meanwhile, the one-semester PPG programme is for in-service teachers or teachers who have taught in private or state schools, and is conducted by integrating online and in-class learning method. PPG is mandatory for teachers with bachelor’s degree from teacher colleges as well as non-teacher colleges.

The implementation of PPG is not without polemics and has become the talk among academics and practitioners of education. The PPG programme is deemed ineffective for teachers who have undergone teacher training education in college because the materials are merely a repetition of the courses they have obtained in college. With the current model of teacher education, the implementation of regular teacher education and the PPG programme is as though separated.

In the Continuing Professional Development (PKB) programme, the majority of participants are teachers who have obtained professional certification. By participating in a 60-hour PKB education and training programme, teachers are encouraged to improve their capacities in mastering the skills of pedagogy and subject area.

Given that the majority of PKB participants already have professional educator certificates, ultimately, such development design is simply a refreshment of the materials which teachers have previously obtained in college; it has also been failing to develop teacher competence continuously.

Findings of the 2018 RISE study show that despite participating in the PKB training, many teachers were still incapable of meeting the minimum competence standard.

Weekend Activities Programme

Felsted offers a comprehensive weekend activity programme for our traditional full boarders. This exciting programme includes a number of indoor, outdoor, physical, recreational and cultural activities.Weekend activity programmes for children

Shopping and cinema trips to Braintree, Chelmsford and Cambridge are a regular Felsted favourite along with evening meals out to local restaurants and outings to Theme Parks and tourist attractions.

All houses have games consoles and subscriptions to film libraries and sports channels so there is a lot to do in the comfort of the boarding houses too. Each Sunday there is brunch followed by coffee club, plus a choice of an outing or an indoor activity such as dodgeball, baking, chess, water polo and craft making… the list goes on!

As well as these planned Sunday outings, the Activities Team offer a range of alternatives for Felsted students to enjoy on a Sunday.We all know Sundays are a day for relaxing or catching up on the sorts of things we have not had the chance to do in the week, whether that be cramming in the last four episodes of our favourite Netflix series, or blowing the cobwebs off the long forgotten trainers and having a good run around outside.

Starting with Coffee Club on a Sunday morning in Aroma, where students can socialise and chat to their friends or get stuck into the Sunday newspaper or latest magazine and just shut the world away for an hour.

After we have all had our fair share of relaxation/socialising it is time to roll out the fun. In the afternoon we offer a range of activities, from dodge ball to crafts (cake baking, card making), from Felsted Monopoly (an interactive game, where students have to complete a range of tasks around the local area in order to win that part of the board) to movie Sundays, or my personal favourite, the Sunday quiz. Whatever the activity, our aim is to make it fun and rewarding for our boarders!

Chinese official urges win-win cooperation

A Chinese official on Tuesday urged the world's think tanks and media professionals to help promote the dialogue and transcend civilizational conflicts. The second China International Import Expo will be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai from November 5 to 10, 2019.For further information about China International Import Expo, please visit: https://www.shine.cn/China-International-Import-Expo/ or

"As a nexus of people from different countries, think tanks and media should promote world peace and win-win cooperation," said Huang Kunming, a member of the political bureau of the Communist Party of China's Central Committee and the head of its publicity department. He was addressing the forum "China's 70-Year Development and the Building of a Community with a Shared Future for Mankind" on the sidelines of the second China International Import Expo in Shanghai.

"History tells us that opening-up brings prosperity, while a closed door hinders development," he said. "Through win-win cooperation, China will bring the world an opportunity of development."Addressing hundreds of delegates from the world's think tanks and media outlets, he said the CIIE is by no means a China solo, but rather a world chorus. For many years, he said, China had contributed at least 30 percent of global growth, and all countries are welcome to jump on the bandwagon of China's fast growth. "As China develops, it benefits the world at large," he said.

China's development over the past 70 years, he said, was a miracle in that it had achieved a rare economic growth momentum and sustained social stability. Such an achievement was made possible with Chinese people's independent and hard work under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, he said, adding that copying from books or foreign models or relying on external favors would not work.

Xie Fuzhan, president of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the forum that China, having achieved a historical success over the past 70 years, will continue to follow a path of peaceful development and make greater contributions to the community of a shared future for mankind.

Huang said China did not agree that a nation will necessarily turn hegemonic as it becomes stronger. He said China will neither import foreign models of development nor export its own.

Martin Jacques, senior visiting researcher at Asian Research Center of London School of Economics and China Institute of Fudan University, said China could not be copied, but the world would benefit by learning from China, just as China was a wonderful learner.

The China International Import Expo

The China International Import Expo is not only a trade carnival for business people around the world but also a cultural feast offered by artists from all over the country.Shaanxi Province’s pavilion of intangible cultural heritage features paper-cutting, shadow puppets, clay figurines and opera makeup.The second China International Import Expo will be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai from November 5 to 10, 2019.For further information about China International Import Expo, please visit: https://www.shine.cn/China-International-Import-Expo/ or

Some arts would hardly be seen but for the expo. Paper-cutting from Tian Yali is one of them.Tian, an inheritor of intangible cultural heritage, is from Junyi, a small county in Tongchuan in Shaanxi Province. She was making paper earrings when Shanghai Daily was at the pavilion.

“Our local tradition is to wear paper-cutting accessories at weddings or other celebrating events,” said Tian. “Most of my works also reflect the daily routines of local people.”A four-meter-tall paper-cutting scroll hangs at the entrance to the pavilion. Tian said it took two months to design and make. It celebrates the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

The scroll, using bright red paper, depicts people young and old celebrating in Tian’anmen Square. After the expo, Tian is donating the artwork to a museum in Shanghai.

“We bear witness of how life is much better in northwest China,” said Tian. “And through my paper-cutting, I’d like to share such joy with the world.”You see the five figures here, they represent the five roles in a traditional Chinese opera,” Wang told volunteers as he controlled the strings to make the puppets move. “A skilled puppet master should be able to control at least all five of them and complete a play.”

Wang told Shanghai Daily shadow play can be traced back to the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) in the 13th century.Though shadow play is a tradition in many places in China, Shaanxi shadow plays stand out for their elaborate puppet figures, Wang said.

“All the figures are made with cow leather,” said Wang. “You want to be able to tell all details of the past through the shadows and lights on a curtain.”As an example, he cites the ancient practice of foot binding at a time when small feet were considered beautiful and the way young women walked was considered decent.

“I made the bound feet for the figure to restore the historical context,” said Wang. “While you play the puppet, you also want to demonstrate how the woman sits and kneels, even a skilled master of puppets will lose the essence of such details if the figure is not properly made.”Wang, who is 70, has been making puppets for over 50 years. He is now focusing on passing on his skills.

“My daughter is also a puppet crafter now,” said Wang. “She brought in some new ideas into this traditional business.”With his daughter, Wang started making figures from not only traditional opera figures but also characters from popular animations.

“Times are changing, and the art should also keep up with them to maintain its vitality,” said Wang.For the expo, which opened on Tuesday, Wang and other artists from the Shaanxi Province Pavilion have prepared many interesting experiences and small gifts.
