Portuguese term or phrase: Instituto Médio Normal - (12a classe)
This term describes a type of school in Angola where students can earn teaching certificates. It appears to me to be a high school, but I don't have much context, since this is only listed on a transcript without further explanation.

The student was enrolled in the "Curso Médio de Formação de Professores", receiving a "certificado" at the end of the program.

Could the "12a classe" mean 12th year of studies?

No Brasil há algo semelhante: a Escola Normal que forma professores primários e corresponde aos dois últimos anos da formação de segundo grau (no passado, clássico e científico).

In Brazil, we have something similar called Escola Normal, for the training of elementary school teachers. Escola Normal corresponds to the last two years of high school.
