The Centre For Education and Language (CEL) has now taken the steps towards innovation. Besides providing intensive English Language immersion via the English For Academic Purposes short courses, and the running of the Matapelajaran Umum (MPU) courses, the Centre has proudly initiated two Diploma in Education progammes; namely, the Diploma in Early Childhood Education (ECE) and Diploma in Education TESL.

The aspiration of CEL is to enhance, build, develop and sustain the quality of Education and the English Language. Both Education and Language empower minds and enable individuals to make life-changing decisions. Globalization and the revolution in information technology have wrought changes in Education and Language. English Language has become the operating system for worldwide communication and there is a need to strengthen the proficiency of English Language among students in order to meet international standards. At the same time, the infusion of technology in Education has brought about rapid changes in teaching approaches in the fields of ECE and TESL.

CEL endeavours to produce graduates who are proficient in the field of ECE and TESL in line with the government’s aspiration of upgrading the early childhood profession and the upskilling of English Language teachers. They will be prepared to function as highly qualified, competent and committed professionals in the field of education.
