Bespoke educational consultancy

Our approach

In addition to offering language and education programmes through a global network of teaching centres, Bell provides a range of tailor-made educational consultancy services to meet its clients’ specific needs.

Bell can deliver complete language and teacher training programmes or can work with clients at different stages of a project with consultancy, assessment and evaluation or materials development input.

We follow a proven and effective four step model to create successful bespoke programmes:

Diagnose

Helping clients to understand their needs

  • Fundamental to the success of any training project is the ability to understand clearly a client’s objectives and the learning needs of the programme’s participants
  • Working with the client, Bell conducts a comprehensive learning needs analysis which identifies and quantifies the learning required to meet specific goals

Design

Creating a bespoke learning programme

  • A tailor-made programme is developed to meet the client’s objectives and the learning needs of individual participants, as identified in the diagnosis phase
  • Such a programme will include:
    • curriculum design
    • identification of learning materials and resources
    • assessment criteria and methods
    • medium and methodology for teaching and learning – including the use of technology and the role of independent learning
    • selection of suitable resources for instruction and management

    • closely monitor participants’ performance, provide guidance on continuous development and report regularly to the client on progress and any remedial actions
