E-learning site for English language
As a result of work in the field of corporate language training, in 2006 I developed my E-learning site, Gapfillers, to deliver advanced level training to people who need high level English language skills for work or study but who are unable to attend regular training sessions. The idea was to fill gaps in language using gaps in the day. The site delivers content via mobile phone as well as online.
The site also hosts my IELTS programmes for students who need to achieve Band 7 and 8
- In 2006 the site was shortlisted for the ELtons.
- In 2007 Gapfillers was runner up in the business competition at Venturefest York .
- Gapfillers won the Yorkshire Digital Award for best E-learning site in 2008.
It is maintained daily, new content is added each day and it delivers an online 'immersion' experience to members.
Various programmes are run from the site using the content and adding Skype sessions and webinars in more specialist areas such as IELTS and Business English.
A 1-year mentoring programme for practising English language teachers, ELTMentor, also runs on the site. This can be cobined with our residential programme or as a stand alone solution.
