SIP+ En. Azudin and SISC+ Miss Mirinda’s joint visit today to the two DTP-AMAN schools on Pulau Tuba focussed on sharing progress at each school during the first half year.
SLT and MLT at each school were updated about the DTP-AMAN PPD- led Transformation(PLT) team from PPD Langkawi before sharing how the school was monitoring 2019 Plan Tactical progress.
Focussing on each school’s Strategic Plan provides a common point for professional dialogue. The role of both SIP+ and SISC+ is to provide support for SLT and MLT to improve their current systems, processes and practices resulting in better student outcomes.
SMK Langkawi collaborate with their DTP-AMAN support team.

Different approaches for documenting instructional leadership practices were shared as well as how each school was analysing recent student assessments and planning for next steps. A focus on PBD is currently high priority at both schools with LW and peer coaching followed up by PLC part of the process to support teachers.
Both schools will also be supported to hold dialog prestasi at the school level in July.
While island life might be slower than life in a big city, helping to improve student and school outcomes is still “core business” and #1 priority for the PLT team at PPD Langkawi.
Despite the early morning start, a visit to the DTP-AMAN schools on Pulau Tuba is always magical – and today was no exception.
ML at SMK Langkawi supported by the designated SISC+ met to ensure they all understood the LW criteria – Positive Learning Environment – and to decide the classrooms to be covered as there were two groups of ML.
Then it was off to see if any changes had been done to classes since the first LW earlier in the year.
On completion of the LW, the team met to share initial impressions based on the LW data and to plan the next steps. The involvement of SLT to support ML initiatives was highlighted and a topic to be followed up at the next PLT visit with SLT.
Great teamwork and problem-solving ML team SMK Langkawi and SISC+.
PPD Langkawi PLT have visited all DTP-AMAN schools since C3 CPD in January 2019 to follow up with schools.
SLT are being supported by PLT PPD officers while SISC+ are supporting ML. This part of the action plan or PILL.S developed between the school and the PPD officers.
All 28 schools under PPD Langkawi have been assigned a School Improvement Officer (SIO) as part of the 2019 MoE focus on supporting schools through bottom up transformation. Over the next 7 weeks, schools will be supported to establish effective systems, processes and tools for regular, focussed Learning Walks and PLCs.
