You first need to read this complete article. It is important that you read every word. I don’t want you to miss a single word because when I take you through the steps of choosing an English provider, you won’t make the wrong decision again and it will protect you from making the wrong choice the next time.
Choosing the wrong provider is a mistake that anyone can make, especially with tight budgets, however after reading this, you will understand how to protect yourself and your company.
In order to have an understanding of this problem English Today provides a questionnaire to companies throughout Indonesia to survey the effectiveness of their previous English Training experiences and the following are the top reasons why they believed that their training budget was wasted.
- Teachers didn’t have a structured plan
- Lessons were boring with students as passive participants
- Teacher was not the providers full-time teacher
- Materials were not practical or related to participants’ jobs
- We hired a private teacher to save money
If you relate to any of this or found it interesting, let me share a little secret with you that will explain these problems. Many of today’s English providers are operating out of virtual offices, what does this mean to you? It means that they can’t legally sponsor their teachers because they don’t have a business address which is required for the sponsorship process. What is the result of this and does this result affect you?
- Teachers are part time
- Company doesn’t provide internal training
- Lessons are not practical
- Materials are not related
The Result = Wasted Budget!
So from this information, it is obvious that English providers must have full-time teachers in order to provide internal training, in order to have the teachers 100% focused on your and your company’s needs.
Now before I tell you how to solve this problem, I want you to imagine the type of training that you desire and the type of training that is very possible with the right provider.
1. Training where the students arrive on time
2. Training where the students actively participate in role-play and stimulated activities
3. Training that improves the relationships with your clients.
Training that gives you the results that your budget has paid for.
