|What is blended learning?
Bended learning is the use of face-to-face teaching combined with online learning opportunities.
The value of tried and true classroom education has been proven over centuries. What’s new is that computer-based eLearning eliminates the distance between a classroom and effective training as it overcomes timing, attendance and travel difficulties.
Vantage 360 is a series of blended courses for professionals–from our Blended BULATS courses to programs specific to industries and professions.
Blended learning promotes self-directed learning and allows learners to access material, forums, page comments for further revision, discussion and peer interaction. It supports the teacher as the online interactions are fully integrated with their face-to-face teaching.
Anywhere. Anytime. Anyhow.
Flexibility is the hallmark of Vantage 360. Our eLearning modules can be taken in the comfort of your home or on road when you’re traveling. They can even be accessed through your smart phone or computer tablet–anyplace you have internet access.
Importantly, they can be done to your schedule, when you’re fresh and ready to learn.
Vantage 360’s Blended BULATS series feature the Business Start-Up and the Business Benchmark courses, which have been specifically designed around the BULATS exam.
Developed by Cambridge University Press, these courses are designed to rapidly get your staff ahead with their Business English vocabulary and skills and give language practice in real business contexts.
At the end of the course, a second BULATS Computer-Adaptive test is given to measure success.
|The BULATS Benchmark
Through the diagnostic power of the BULATS Computer-Adaptive test, Vantage 360 places your staff into one of five levels: Beginner, Elementary, Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate or Advanced.
Each course is designed around approximately 120 hours of classroom instruction – complemented by an additional 80 to 100 hours of online interactions.
The goal is simple: to increase one complete CEFR level of language proficiency.
Proof of Proficiency
Vantage 360 has a powerful set of reporting tools for managing your course and tracking student progress. You have a snapshot of how any individual is doing, with easy-to-read reports that represents each individual’s strengths, weaknesses and progress.
As their language proficiency grows, so will their confidence–and that means they’ll increasingly use their newly acquired English communications skills in your business. And that means greater productivity for your company.
