The ELT-Consultants © way

Innovating education since 2009

Low-resource teaching

We believe that any educational resource can be designed without expensive equipment and that distance learning classrooms can function in low-resource technological environments.

Sustainability

We believe that every teacher training or material design should have a sustainable aspect that can be seen not only in the content and teaching methodology, but also the overall project implementation.

Outdoor learning

We believe that outdoor learning is not only for low-resource learning environments, and that each classroom should have an environmental aspect, from teaching philosophy to didactic materials.

The future of ELT

ELT is evolving. ELT-Consultants © believes in the importance of design and planning BEFORE programme implementation is the answer with key performance indicators guiding the project to ensure sustainability and legacy. Current research on the number of countries introducing English at Grade 1 is outdated (Pinter 2010). There’s a mismatch between political aspirations and reality on the ground, with a shortfall of trained ELT teachers with adequate language proficiency and appropriate methodology. The Pandemic highlighted the disparity in education provision and the ever-increasing digital divide but English Language Teaching is evolving.

Our perspective on education

ELT-Consultants © are here to help you manoeuvre through possible solutions for the current issues in the world of education.

1. Inclusion

Education and teacher training is for EVERYONE, regardless of their location and any other personal identifiers.

2. Low-resources

Low-resource learning environments are CELEBRATED, and considered creative, adaptable, and forward-thinking.

3. Outdoor learning

Outdoor learning is viewed as an INNOVATION, and not as the means to an end in low-resource communities.

4. Digitalization

Digitalization and use of technology is possible in any classroom, and we are here to help educators design their instruction according to their needs.

Telegram app: Effective digitalization for low-resource classrooms

During the Covid-19 pandemic we focused on using the Telegram App for teacher training, workshops and communication because, unlike other apps such as Zoom or Teams, Telegram uses a small amount of mobile data. All the information on the Telegram app is securely encrypted, audio recordings and video messages can easily be made. It is a suitable media to digitalize a low-resource classroom and the app can be used by minors.

Expert consultancies

Our specific areas of expertise include: research, assessment, curriculum, teacher education and CPD, MEL, online teacher education. We can write reports, articles, research papers and scoping studies. We can work with teachers/teacher educators at all four stages of CPD development (from Foundation to Specialisation).

We can design a needs analysis for identifying the specific requirements of a context. We can then design a baseline study with key performance indicators (KPI’s) in order to evaluate the impact, sustainability, and legacy.

We can integrate both (monitoring and evaluation (M&E) and MEL frameworks into projects. The M&E produces data for accountability, whilst MEL focuses on the progress of the KPI’s. We can also evaluate projects using the OECD’s Network on Development Evaluation (EvalNet) framework with their 6 evaluation criteria for: relevance, effectiveness, impact, coherence, efficiency, and sustainability.

We can design a research methodology to identify key areas for investigation. We can design and distribute surveys to understand challenges. We can conduct both online and f2f focus group interviews. Based on the research data we can make recommendations on CPD all levels.

After collecting and analyzed relevant research data from policy, curricula, pedagogy, assessment, learning materials, teacher education and teacher language proficiency, we can make recommendations of the key issues, areas, factors, resources to consider for effective implementation of any ELT programme.
