SEAQIM has recently started partnering with tertiary institutions to offer internship opportunities to final year students and recent graduates. Given the wide range of activities undertaken at SEAQIM, the potential for internship opportunities is broad. Example of internship areas include information technology, video production and computer and mobile application development. These positions allow interns to gain experience in using their skills in a professional context, get insight into a potential career path and help build a professional network. SEAQIM is currently seeking further partnerships with universities looking to provide their students and recent graduates with out of the classroom learning opportunities.

SEAMEO Regional Centre for QITEP in Mathematics regular courses are fully funded by DIPA SEAMEO SEAMOLEC 2017 budget based on special terms and conditions.
SEAQIM has designed and conducted mathematics education events which encourage an outdoor activity approach. This approach is not merely having a class outside of the classroom but it demonstrates to participants how to stimulate student learning through playing and experimenting, as well as playing games that arouse a deeper understanding of the surrounding environment.
An outdoor activity approach stimulates students to learn mathematics easily and joyfully. One of the activities promoting this approach is Mathematics Camp. This Camp is designed to help teachers to develop their skills in designing outdoor activities.
- Venue: Hotel Puri Arsi Magelang, Central Java
- participated by 40 Junior Secondary School teachers
- Venue: PPPPTK Matematika
- participated by 50 Primary School teachers
SEAQIM has held many seminars in order to provide a forum for many teachers, educators and researchers to review the current issues, and exchange innovative ideas. Seminars are mostly funded by the Centre.
Seminars are held to inform the teachers on the results of researches that has been done. This includes Seminar on Disaster Risk Reduction and Seminar on Mathematics Regional Wide Assessment. Call for participation is informed through the Centre’s website
One of the biggest seminar held was conducted at the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia. The seminar was held as part of the SEAMEO 50th anniversary. Participants of the seminar was GB members, teachers and education personnel. A total of 118 participants attending. One the keynote speakers is no other than the Minster of Education, H.E. Anis Baswedan, Ph.D.
The International Symposium for Mathematics Education Innovation was designed by SEAQIM and presented in the form of an international forum to foster the exchange of innovative ideas and strategies for mathematics teaching and learning in the 21st century and to encourage collaboration and partnerships amongst mathematics educators.
SEAQIM provides scholarships to Indonesian mathematics teachers/educators to attend and present their papers at the International Symposium on Mathematics Education Innovation. The scholarship covers return air tickets or land transportation from the nearest city to Yogyakarta and accommodation during the symposium. Mathematics educators submit the full paper of their research or innovation conducted in their classroom or university to be eligible. The scholarships are given based on merit and also on a first come first served basis, therefore it is encouraged for applicants to submit papers as soon as possible.
When natural disasters strike, children are one of the most vulnerable groups in the population, and the responsibility for protecting them from harm at school and elsewhere is self-evident. Education can play a significant role in reducing the risks that results from natural disasters by improving awareness of the risks, and the steps that can be taken to reduce harm before, during and after the disaster.
SEAQIM therefore developed a series of teaching models to increase student’s awareness of natural disasters. The intention is that this will help them to develop the practical skills that can reduce or minimize the harm.
The Centre collaborates with mathematics experts and mathematics teachers in designing the teaching models. Teachers from various stages are invited to design the learning models, which are then implemented in their class. During the implementation, mathematics experts and other teachers observe. The observers then give inputs and suggestions to improve the learning models.
The Centre has so far developed models on earthquakes, floods and typhoons, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and landslides. To date, a total of 6 Primary School, 4 Junior High School and 5 Senior High School modules have been developed and published.
Some of the topics the Centre has covered are:
- Land Slides
- Earth quake
- Volcanic Eruptions
As a Centre which focuses on developing teachers and education personnel’s professional skills, teaching models are needed to give a concrete example of approaches, strategies and teaching methods for training participants.
Collaborating with experts, the Centre designs teaching models to be used in the classroom. Teaching models are implemented, observed and revised before its actual use. To date, the Centre has developed 29 teaching models for various themes and school levels . These teaching models are then used for best practices for the Centre and for mathematics teachers in general.
SEAQIM has openly invited teachers to collaborate with the Centre in designing teaching models. Teaching models sent to the Centre will be selected and the top 10 will be invited to Yogyakarta to present their teaching models. From these ten, the best 3 will awarded to continue to the next workshop session. The Centre will facilitate teachers to develop and revise their teaching models where needed.
The Centre has also worked collaboratively with other institutions to hold teacher trainings in their region within Southeast Asia. Funding for the programmes comes from two sources, from the Centre and from the collaborating institutions. In-country coursesare designed to address the multifaceted needs of professional teachers and related personnel in the region, covering a wide range of subjects and approaches. Unlike regular course, the Centre does not provide scholarships for participants.Themes of in-country courses may adopt the themes for regular courses.
In-country trainings from 2009-2015
