Over the past two weeks, 11 Jamaican teachers attended an online training provided by the IFLE project to become DELF examiners.
Originally scheduled for February 2020 in Jamaica, this training had to be postponed due to the pandemic. It is only when France Education International allowed trainings to be carried out online that the IFLE team and the Ministry of Education were able to reschedule. This training, facilitated by Ms Lipoff (accredited by France Education International), is the last of 7 training sessions organized by the IFLE project in the region.
Teachers were selected by the Ministry to complete the first two levels of this certification. Thanks to this 10-hour training via video conference, they discovered the A1 and A2 levels of the CEFRL and the corresponding DELF exams, and learned how to grade the different components, through group activities and individual assignments.
The new examiners will receive a certification that is valid for 5 years, during which they will be able to administrate and correct the DELF exam for the A1 and A2 levels, either in schools or at the local Alliance Française.
The IFLE team really wants to thank the Ministry of Education in Jamaica (especially Ms Roxanne Lovelace, Curriculum Officer) and the participants for their dedication to the project.
