We Work Under the Following Strategies:

Transformación de prácticas de enseñanza

1. Transformation of Teaching Practices

In collaboration with Education Secretariats, public entities, and public and private schools, we develop programs that provide training and professional development opportunities for teachers, instructors, and administrators. We address the need for innovation in teaching methodology, classroom practices, or the enhancement of English language communication skills for specific purposes.

a. Institutional Bilingualism Management

We support directors, academic coordinators, and bilingualism staff in public and private schools in Colombia to transition to a Bilingual Educational Model. We offer training in teaching English as a second language and essential skills such as leadership and teamwork within the school.

b. Technical and Vocational Education and Training Vocabulary Program

We aim to enhance English language knowledge for instructors in technical and technological institutions in various regions of Colombia for specific purposes. This training can be conducted through various modalities (virtual, in-person, or hybrid).

c. English Strengthening for Teachers

We provide support to teachers in public and private schools to improve their English language communication skills, deepen their understanding of English as a foreign language teaching methodology, and strengthen their performance as educators.

d. Bilingual Schools

We assist public and private schools in their journey towards a Bilingual Educational Model, a network of bilingualism specialist scholars, and universities in the United States with extensive experience in English language education and the creation of installed capacity in schools for the development of bilingual education plans.
