Following up the collaboration with IOA and DISDIKPORA (Education, Youth and Sports Office) of North Lombok, SEAQIS conducted Training on Classroom Supervision for Principals and Supervisors in North Lombok Regency. The Regent of North Lombok, H. Djohan Sjamsu, S. H., officially opened the training. He was accompanied by the Head of Education Office, Dr Fauzan Fuad, M. Pd. The training consisted of four batches. The first two batches were conducted from 5 to 7 April and from 8 to 10 April. The other two batches will be conducted in June 2021.
During the opening, Mr Dhojan Sjamsu stated that this training activity is an important programme to improve and advance principals and supervisors’ competence in the region, especially after the earthquake that hit Lombok in 2018.

The first batch participants were 18 primary school principals and two supervisors, while the participants of the second batch were 15 primary school principals and three supervisors.

The facilitators of the training were Dr Indrawati and Dr Elly Herliani. The Executive Director of IOA, Ms Tanti Sugiharti, supervised the conduct of the training.
The training aimed to improve the knowledge, attitude, and skills of principals and supervisors in conducting academic supervision at school. During the training, several topics were delivered, including the local government policy, quality assurance system, academic supervision, assessment and process standards, and follow-up action. The videotape of HE Nadiem Makariem regarding the national exam and the use of a 1-sheet lesson plan was also aired.
