Our Partners

We are proud to work with…

TransformELT

We are delighted to be partnering with TransformELT and hope to work with them on a number of international educational and employability projects. TransformELT takes a systems-based approach designing effective educational change programmes to meet the needs of the 21st century. Much of their work focuses on enabling institutions to form development plans and collaborating on institutional development. TransformELT also help teachers, trainers and other English Language Teaching professionals choose development pathways appropriate to them. We believe that Unimenta’s focus on soft skills and employability provides an ideal platform from which to work together on large projects and programmes that combine our areas of expertise.

British Council

We have been providing educational consultancy for the British Council since 2000. This work is typically in emerging markets focusing on core employability skills, developing teachers and trainers, materials development and large-scale monitoring and evaluation work. In 2014 we were delighted to work on an exciting joint British Council and Department for International Development (DfID) project supporting teachers in Tanzania: EQUIP-T ELT (Education Development and Quality Improvement Project for English Language Teacher Training in Tanzania). We worked with local teams to revise teaching materials, train local teachers and design a comprehensive Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework and tools.

“I just wanted to say how much I appreciated your work on EQUIPT and what a consistently high quality your input was. No matter what DFID and others decide now the Baseline materials will stand the test of time, many of the trainers have now moved onto greater things and you can feel rightfully proud of your work.” David Pardoe, British Council

Professional Upskilling of English Language Teachers, Malaysia

We were the lead consultants for monitoring and evaluating (M&E) on this large-scale British Council/Ministry of Education project. We worked with digital tools to measure change and impact on the 9,000 teachers involved in the project. We used participatory video, digital diaries, focus groups and teacher observation using Ipads. The consultancy involved creating M&E tools, frameworks, planning, local team training and workshops as well as analysis and collation of results.

Skills for Employability, India

We were thrilled to be working on this great project to understand the key language and soft skills requirements needed at entry-level jobs in the construction, healthcare and hospitality sectors. We conducted a range of interviews and discussions with employers, training providers, employees and sector skills councils. This work will inform the redesign of frameworks to help standardise qualifications and create clear benchmarks. Preliminary results were presented at the Global Education Dialogue in Sri Lanka in May 2015 and the research was officially launched in Delhi, India in June 2015.

Continuing Professional Development, India

Between 2012 and 2015 we worked on a range of CPD projects in India. This work included review and evaluation of British Council materials and recommendations for development of a core portfolio of courses and materials. The work included primary and secondary research (desk, interviews, focus groups plus design of suitable tools, frameworks and questionnaires) and site visits to Master Trainer programmes. The project had a CPD focus which included designing and developing an India-specific framework and strategy, facilitation of workshops and meetings with British Council staff and support with creating internal and external communication documents.

Skills for Employability, Bangladesh

In 2014 we visited Bangladesh three times conducting a research project to understand the links between English language, soft skills and employability skills. The work brought us into contact with some NGOs doing amazing work with young people, all kinds of initiatives and the result was a report to help key stakeholders start to consolidate projects and work more closely together.
