Do you absolutely go off the rails when you visit a relative’s house and your eyes meet those of their child, just wanting to pinch their cheeks off? Do you know that most kids can speak up to 20 words by the age of 18 (months of course, not years!), and 50 by the age of 2? Do other people compliment you on how patient you are, even in the face of the ultimate irritation? (Think small baby screaming his/her guts out right in your face). If so, you might want to consider a career in early childhood education. So continue reading as we give you a glimpse of what it feels like to study Early Childhood Education in Malaysia.

Teaching children may not be as simple as it sounds. You need the right approach, mindset, method, tools and skills to enhance their learning abilities. It is very important for them to establish a solid educational foundation in their early years to kick start their studies to move into primary, secondary and higher education. And this is where you step in! A course in Early Childhood Education would prepare you to teach children in this specific age group so that they can go on to lead successful lives.

Do you possess a Bachelor’s Degree in a field other than education? Do you also love teaching, sharing knowledge and shaping the future? Well then, you may want to consider a teaching course such as the Kursus Perguruan Lepasan Ijazah (KPLI) as your next step. Read on to find on what exactly it is.

Kursus Perguruan Lepasan Ijazah (KPLI) is a course offered by the Teacher’s Education Division (BPG), Ministry of Education, to provide an opportunity for graduates who have a Bachelor's degree in various fields to join the teaching profession to meet the shortage of teachers and teach in private and international schools in Malaysia. The course is held for a year in teacher’s training colleges throughout the country.

Have you always been really well versed in the English language? Do you know how to spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious? (Prior to us spelling it out, and without consulting Google). Do you like sharing knowledge, always happy to explain certain subjects friends may not fully understand? If you do, then perhaps you should consider studying the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language).

A TEFL certification provides the skills needed to teach English abroad in countries where students do not speak English as their first language, such as China, Japan or Brazil. TEFL certification is the most widely recognised and highly regarded qualification of its kind around the world.

TESOL courses are relatively new and may cover a broader range of topics. They tend to study them in less depth. TESOL courses are not as widely recognised and are sometimes incompatible with some curriculum plans.
