Muhammadiyah Foundation

The Muhammadiyah Foundation is a major Islamic non-government organisation with over 30 million members managing hundreds of schools, colleges and universities across Indonesia. Holmesglen has worked with Muhammadiyah in Indonesia since 2014.

Our initial project operated a jointly branded language training centre in Jakarta at the University of Muhammadiyah Tangerang. The centre had over 10,000 graduates from our English language program, supporting undergraduate students at the university.
More recently we have worked across multiple sites in Indonesia providing teacher training for English lecturers across Muhammadiyah universities. Our agreed goal was to improve best teaching practice through English for Specific Purposes (ESP) curriculum design and implementation.
An example is the English Language for Nursing project. Three modules of professional development for English language trainers took place over two years. Drawing more than 50 participants from almost 30 different universities, these sessions built skills in methodology and curriculum.
A final session set up a team of 12 English teachers with 12 nursing educators for the task of designing ESP language materials. This included a series of teleconferences and meetings to negotiate, mediate, moderate and eventually decide approaches, content and pedagogy for a body of materials.
The outcome was a curriculum document comprising more than 300 pages of Indonesian-contextualised resources in the field of English for Nursing.




Holmesglen is in the early stages of working with PT. ODG, a leading Jakarta based electrical, fire and mechanical service contractor.  The partnership will see the delivery of a tailored Skillset program in the electrical space that will provide Holmesglen customised training to employees of PT. ODG.
As well as the delivery of technical based training, IST (Industry Skills Training) courses will also be provided will enhance the capacity of the local staff to deliver, in conjunction with Holmesglen, training across the range of electrical areas.
Currently the partnership is focusing on the development of appropriate resources and assessment documentation across the agreed subject areas, as well as training room equipment requirements, with the prospect of in-country delivery in early 2022.
