Teaching in English with the Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) began at Yesenov University in pedagogical specialities of natural sciences and mathematics, and is dedicated to the training and development of future teachers.
CLIL subject teacher-training program covers the integration of language and discipline. The purpose is to form student-centred learning by combining the use of English in science and mathematics education. The three-year program aims to improve communication skill, motivation, and knowledge, as well as cognitive skills such as critical thinking.
Education in English has been accepted as the national policy by the “Ministry of Education and Science” in Kazakh schools. Language teachers are in great demand in secondary schools and training centres. The CLIL program is part of the implementation of the above policy.
