Curriculum and Course Development, Course Support, Training Teachers, Running Courses
We provide a wide selection of training and education services: Curriculum and Materials design and development; Trainer Piloting and modification of Courses; Development of Additional Modules for courses; an On-line Orientation for trainers for the TESOL course; Support for courses you have licensed to run (during course consultation, and participant evaluation and trainer feedback summaries and analysis after the course); Training of on-site Trainers; and providing Trainers for Training on courses. We also provide support for Directors of Studies, Academic Directors, Department Heads, and other key people in your educational institution/organization. That’s a lot!
So how do we do it? We are dedicated to working with you to build your own staff of trainers. And, ptec members are always an option. We have personally worked with these trainers and believe that together we are a consortium of education professionals that delivers quality training and education.
Curriculum and Course Development
Curriculum and Materials Planning and Development
You like our existing offerings, but have a specific need in mind. Be it large or small we are ready to hear your ideas and design a curriculum specifically for your educational needs.
Creation of additional Modules/Materials for already existing courses
You like one of our existing courses and would like to have additional modules and/or materials developed to address assessed and/or developing needs or to address your specific context.
We provide support for trainers and your school/institution/company when running ptec courses you have licensed to deliver. You can choose the level of support that works for you.
Orientation courses are aimed at the first time an already qualified trainer runs a course for you, using ptec courses, e.g. modular TESOL course, EFL for Teachers, or Teacher Training for Elementary School Teachers. Our Orientations make sure they understand course philosophy and procedures. They combine a series of tasks with a Skype conversation to make sure that your trainers are ready to train.
Course Consultation while you are running one of our courses
Often, once you license to run a course, you are on your own. But if you want support for your trainers while they are training the course, ptec provides an email and Skype venue for regular check-ins and the opportunity to ask questions.
Summaries and Analysis of Course Feedback and Evaluations
Everyone of our courses has an in-depth course evaluation and feedback document that the teachers taking the course fill out. We also have a form for trainers who have taught the course. After your course is over, we summarize and analyze these documents to help you move forward. We share that information in a written report and/or via a Skype conversation.
