Kazakhstan teacher training for Cambridge University

During August, I was invited by Cambridge Assessment, which is part of Cambridge University, to deliver training to teachers from the Kazakhstan Government’s flagship Nazarbayev Intellectual Schools – http://nis.edu.kz/en/ The training was based in Kazakhstan’s capital city, Astana.

I’ll write about the details of the training and the content in due course. However, those involved have requested a number of photos from my time in the country, thus a few are below:IMG_2314
