Collaboration is at the core of the Westchester Education Services model. By working together, we help customers achieve the goals of their ELT programs, whether they need a new product or an adaptation of an existing one.
Our ELT team is comprised of diverse and seasoned veterans who have developed programs for learners around the world. We employ an assemblage of highly skilled talent and rely on solid infrastructure to fine-tune content that satisfies aptitude, motivation, learner differences, and program goals.
For new programs, we leverage shared skills and knowledge to plan and create content that can be used within individual English language-learning and teaching programs. Our team, together with our customers, navigate through guided explorations of current issues and approaches in ELT to provide the best foundation for content-building choices.
We also recognize the importance of national and regional interests and cultural values, and we fully embrace measures to incorporate notions of self-identity into our clients’ content.
For adaptations, we supplement extra-linguistic items and activities to compensate for the perceived inadequacy or insufficiency of currently used materials. With both new programs and adaptations, our client's needs are at the forefront of the process, with opportunities to review and provide feedback embedded from program launch to final file delivery.
Westchester applies several essential building blocks in ELT development:
