Are the AP World Language and Culture Exams important for CBHL schools despite many challenges for CBHL schools to have their
students take them, and many alternative tests available to assess their bilingual proficiency?

Hello. What does your school do to recognize your students' bilingual and biliteracy ability? Is there any positive effect of this recognition at school, on your students, such as an increase of learning motivation, better attendance and so on?

For more than five decades, Korindo Group has devoted itself to improving the quality of life for people in Indonesia. Various efforts have been made, including the creation of extensive job opportunities through korindocareers.com and community empowerment in all economic activities, as well as social responsibility.
Korindo Group will and should continue to carry out many developments that have made us a pioneer by sticking to the motto "One Step Ahead." This dedication has also established us as a market leader in a variety of industries in Southeast Asia.
Korindo Group believes that our accomplishments so far cannot be separated from the contributions of individuals who are completely committed to the organization. As a result, we place a great importance on our workers' performance by attempting to foster a healthy work environment and culture.
  1. Employee appreciation
Employees at Korindo firms are treated to a variety of appreciation activities. One way is to provide scholarships to the children of employees who excel. This initiative is a way for us to express our gratitude while also contributing to the education sector.
  • Respect Diversity
  • The Korindo Group places a high importance on diversity. We value diversity and think that everyone deserves equal opportunity. This diversity encompasses both visible distinctions, such as age, gender, and ethnicity, and subtle ones, such as job location and educational background.
  • Encourage staff growth
  • We think that every employee has the right to further their education and career. PT Korindo Group, as an innovative organization, aspires to assist workers in realizing their full potential via a variety of structured training and development programs.
  • Time management that is efficient and effective
  • For all levels of labor, time is the most important commodity. As a result, it is critical for Korindo Group to encourage people to utilize it responsibly. We think that efficient and effective time management will increase the company's productivity, which will benefit all employees.
  • Promote teamwork
  • Cooperation is essential for the growth of a business. Korindo Group continues to motivate and encourage all workers to assist one another in achieving common goals.

    Korindo Group Recruitment Process
    Korindo Group works hard to find qualified employees (HR). We also assure that individuals who have given us their time will grow and develop with us.
    Prospective workers must go through various steps in the Korindo Group recruitment process.
    1. Administration Appointment
    At this point, Korindo Group will verify the accuracy of the data and documents supplied to our official email address by potential workers. This step is intended to assist us in understanding your professional path and competencies. Curriculum Vitae, job application letters, degrees, transcripts, and images are some of the papers that are frequently required.
  • Personality Test
  • Prospective workers are required to complete a series of tests in a set amount of time throughout the personality test procedure.
  • Job Interview
  • Following that, the Korindo Group representative will have a formal and in-depth discussion with the potential employee. This stage is completed so that we may perform more evaluations before determining whether or not to hire applicants.
    At this point, we normally gather information about Korindo Group and the sector of employment that prospective candidates are interested in.
  • Offering letter
  • This is the final step in the recruitment process and the first step in the employment agreement between the firm and the employee. The offering letter specifies the employee's rights and duties.

    Previously, Tunas Sawa Erma Group was an Indonesian registered company engaged in the cultivation and processing of oil palm and its head office was in Papua. The TSE Group consists of PT Tunas Sawa Erma, PT Berkat Cipta Abadi and PT Dongin Prabhawa.
    In line with its vision and mission to become a global company, the TSE Group is committed to a No Deforestation, Zero Peat and Zero Exploitation (NDPE) policy, which has been implemented and is clearly reflected on the company's official website. In addition, the company's concession area is not located in the moor.
    In addition, TSE Group creates a work system and work environment that supports the development of human resources through selection and training programs as well as continuous development. The company currently has a continuous development team.
    Also, the TSE Group strives to maintain harmonious and mutually constructive relationships with the local government and the community as well as actively develop the economic welfare of the Papuan people.
    On the other hand, KORINDO is an Indonesian company founded in 1969 that has been around for 50 years.
    KORINDO is recognized for the proper development of forest resources and the advancement of related processing industries to contribute to Indonesia's macro and micro economic development.
    It is also acknowledged that KORINDO has succeeded in supplying local newsprint and has responded well to the government's call to reform the newspaper industry, which is 100% dependent on imported newsprint.
    Through forests and oil palm plantations, KORINDO has succeeded in developing environmentally friendly industries whose economic value is obtained directly from forests and forest resources.
    KORINDO is committed to developing its business in underdeveloped areas of Indonesia through road construction and housing development, among other key infrastructure developments required for the development of the entire region.
    KORINDO employs around 10,000 workers and built an education center in Asiki, Papua's main business district, to develop the skills of local residents and create jobs.
    And on April 1, 2021, the company issued an announcement containing information on the separation between the Tunas Sawa Erma Group from the Korindo Group. The following is the contents of the announcement quoted from korindonews.com
    Please note that PT Tunas Sawa Erma, PT Berkat Cipta Abadi and PT Dongin Prabhawa were separated from Korindo Group on April 1, 2021, and are managed independently as TSE Group.
    Information about Korindo Group can still be found through the company's official website at https://www.korindo.co.id/ .

    We can start with the excellent features of German schools that an ambassador recently identified, think about successes and challenges with having those features in schools teaching other languages, and then think about features that those schools have in place that are excellent.
    Renate, would you like to describe the features of German schools that the visitor from Germany recently identified?

    I think that a Parent Association is a wonderful idea. It gives parents a voice and a sense of power and agency.
    I think it would be wonderful if the school also invited different parents to come in as speakers (but maybe in classes other than those that their children are in ...).

    In order to increase parental participation and to keep the school functioning, my school (Orange Coast Japanese School) has a Parent Association. It consists of one of the three pillars of the school, PA, Board and Teachers. Unlike a traditional governance structure of administration, these three groups have equal voice and share the equal responsibility and decision making. OCG is run and operated by an active Parents Association (PA). The PA organizes various events and engages in fundraising activities, including participating in the annual Orange International Street Fair. The money that we earn is used to pay for the school’s monthly rent and other expenses.
