What is this course about?

This is a thorough Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course where it is expected that the teacher spends 50 hours of his/her time watching the videos after carefully reading all the background papers and supporting documentation that is provided to him/her through our course.


The course is designed to ensure that the candidates get all the basics of what the ten metacognition skills are and how effectively they can be taught using the suggested signature pedagogies. Having done these then there are suggested ways to track the metacognitive progress of their pupils.


There are three modules, each module will have some defined learning outcomes.


The overall MCQs at the end of the course checks how well the candidate has understood the concepts that are taught throughout this course. 


It is suggested that you make this a hands-on course that demands implementing what you are learning in this course. Thus, preferably we hope that it is not just a theory-based course where one just reads the papers, watches the videos, and submits the assignments. Make it a hands-on course where you are expected to implement various strategies taught in the course.


It is thus a comprehensive course for a teacher who is serious about developing her/his metacognitive skills and wants to make a difference in the life of their pupils. Brighter, sharper, and enriched pupils mean a better overall outcome for them and an outstanding achievement/rating for the school.

What will you get at the end of the course?

Candidates will be assessed through a combined multiple-choice question at the end of the course.


Those who cannot secure that pass percentage will be offered one free re-sit i.e., s/he will be able to re-do the MCQ again and re-submit them. However, if s/he still fails to clear then s/he will get another chance by paying the prevailing rate of the course at that time.


Once passed the candidate will get a certificate that will be issued by the parent company of the course provider and that is ASTML (Academy of Science Technology and Management Limited) for CiriBloom.


Your re-sit attempts will not be reflected on your certificate.


Once passed, the candidate will join our global network of metacognitive course teacher alumni where they can continue to share and partake in the new developments that are happening on the education front. As our course alumni they will have access to our webinars and interactions with course developers and other eminent educationists that CiriBloom will continue to host on its platforms.
