More great news for MBSAT: The government of Singapore has included MBSAT courses in a scholarship program for skill-building and now funds up to 90% of the tuition for participants in MBSAT intensive courses! This is a recognition of MBSAT as an effective training method. A first course benefitting from the government funding took place end of June at SMU Academy with a hugely interesting group of highly qualified professionals, among them many engineers and high-tech experts.
Soon afterwards, in July, the Singapore Management University SMU decided to host both the MBSAT Teacher Training – MBSAT TT in Asia and the MBSAT TT in Europe next year, a further signal of growing international recognition. Dates and further information of both programs can be found here:
These developments generate international visibility for MBSAT as a non-clinical program with a practical orientation suitable for people in the workplace and other people pursuing personal growth. And this in turn will facilitate the future teaching practice of MBSAT teachers currently in training. A new, fantastically engaged group has completed the first phase, a 6-day MBSAT TT module in Phuket, Thailand, at the beginning of June and is preparing for the second module to take place also in Phuket in November this year.
The future looks bright for MBSAT!
