Detail of the school management and operation service

1. Select the curriculum

Choosing the curriculum is the key to the success of the school

For schools that follow Vietnamese programs of Ministry of Education and Training, it is necessary to comply with regulations, which parts need to be modified under the law in order to improve the learning effectiveness of students? Which intensive English program that meets the learning needs of students and parents with the desire to study abroad in the future?

For the bilingual and international schools, which training programs will be used? Is the IB (International Baccalaureate) or Cambridge (CIE) system? Today, it is quite diverse for the selection of international curriculum, the schools generally use the GCSE and A-level assessment systems of the UK or programs of the United States and Canada, etc. However, which program will save costs for the school, parents and achieve the highest learning efficiency for students? This needs our accurate research according to local needs to get the best choice.

We help the school to connect to international curriculum providers and support the transfer of these programs to the school.
