Infrastructure and Support

Support and Tutoring

Edusoft offers intensive pedagogical support via an international team of qualified native speaking specialists in English teaching. The team provides consulting and support through face-to-face seminars, personal classroom observations and recommendations, ongoing online correspondence, conference calls and online community forums. Edusoft’s pedagogical experts also monitor students’ performance levels in order to provide ongoing guidance to teachers throughout the year.

Large-Scale Model of Training, Implementation and Pedagogical Support

A cascade model is generally used for nationwide, large-scale projects in order to establish a sustainable, cost-effective method of training, implementation and pedagogical support. This model enables large groups of teachers to be trained in a relatively short time period with minimal resources. Edusoft’s team of pedagogical experts runs training courses for supervisors and teachers, who then, in turn, train multiple, small groups of people, until these skills are passed on to all levels of teachers.

Community Forums

Edusoft’s advanced, interactive, English learning platform, English Discoveries, offers community forums in which ESL / EFL teachers worldwide can connect and correspond as well as links to social networking facilities. These online forums can be restricted to in-house teacher communities and are guided and monitored by Edusoft’s pedagogical consultants on a weekly basis, offering comprehensive teaching support.
