Velawoods English teamed up with Thai Information Publishing System as part of a government-funded project to develop English language communication skills of government employees. The first stage of the project targeted teachers before rolling it out to other government agencies throughout Thailand.
Over a period of 9 weeks, 8000 teachers/learners attended over 50 workshops in 8 cities across Thailand; Bangkok, Chonburi, Kalasin, Loei, Nakhonphanom, Nongkhai, Sakonnakhon and Udonthani.
The full day workshops included a presentation in the morning on ‘English for Communication Skills Development in the 21st Century’ by renowned English language experts. The afternoon sessions included lively and engaging demonstrations of the Velawoods English course, application and registration process.
As the training programme concluded for the year, Velawoods English was the third most selected course from over 1,460 available courses. In the Northeast region of Thailand, it was the number one most selected course in terms of registered users.
The programme also received a 4.2 out of 5.0 overall satisfaction rating.
