Universiti Brunei Darussalam, Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Institute of Education

Introduction

Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Institute of Education, SHBIE, is one of the faculties in Universiti Brunei Darussalam and has been successfully preparing teachers for over 50 years. As the needs of schools and society have changed, so has our Institute. From a humble beginning in 1956 as Maktab Perguruan (Teacher Education College), the Institute has grown to become a Graduate School of Education in 2009.

As a graduate school, SHBIE offers graduate programmes featuring high quality instruction and an academic curriculum designed to raise teaching standards and support effective school systems.


SHBIE, fully dedicated and equipped to graduate study in education, is the premier teacher training institute in Brunei Darussalam comprising of a truly international faculty of educational professionals with extensive overseas and local teaching and research experience representing a comprehensive range of expertise, which ensures that the courses offered reflect the latest theory and research in the field of education. SHBIE is unwavering in its commitment to shape the future by educating its students to become teachers of highest quality trained in the best practices. It is my hope that you will give us an opportunity to show you the possibilities we offer. Please contact us for more information so that we can assist you in fulfilling your educational goals.

The Institute’s main purpose is the preparation of early childhood, primary, secondary and technical school teachers and educational administrators. In addition, it provides introductory courses related to more specialized educational roles such as guidance and counselling, remedial teaching and curriculum design.
The Institute’s teaching programme is guided by the belief that the professional education of teachers is an on-going process. It begins with the pre-service or initial phase of training and continues throughout the teachers’ careers through their participation in upgrading and in-service courses. The Institute therefore also gives high priority to the upgrading of teacher’s qualifications and the provision of short in-service courses.
