Education and Training International (ETI) was established in 1995 with the purpose of providing a raft of training and consultancy services to the international oil and gas industries in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
The company is privately owned and its Chairman, John Eades is directly involved on a day-to-day basis with the operation of the company and its global contracts. John has been involved in English language, Business and Technical training for many years and has worked with a large number of multinational organisations.
The company has been operating in the CIS since 1996 and has offices in Tbilisi, Kutaisi, Batumi, Baku, Sumgayit, Ganja, Aktau, Atyrau and a head office in London.
ETI’s local and international instructors deliver a wide variety of training courses in Azerbaijan, Georgia and Kazakhstan and ETI employs over 100 people.
In addition to our language training courses, ETI has a wealth of other services that we are able to offer including:
- Language Audit and Staff Assessment
- Management Training
- Interpreting and Translating
- Training and Meeting Rooms
- Computer Training
- Project Management Training
- HSE Training
- Risk Management
Our wide range of international contacts also enables us to organize third party training with recognised international vendors in a diverse range of topics.
ETI’s methodology can be summarised with the following key concepts. Our training is outcome-led, in that we design our programmes and methods of implementation to meet the work-specific needs of the trainees. Our approach is very practical and hands-on in that trainees use the language all the time and opportunities for practice in the classroom are maximised. Our classes are highly motivating by being both interesting and relevant to the trainees’ work needs.
Our trainers develop clear learning targets for each trainee and these become milestones for that trainee to work towards. Our programmes are flexible to allow us to respond to both changing learning needs and complex shift and roster patterns.
Our commitment to individualisation of learning is one of the basic tenets of our approach. Within the course design and classroom setting, priority will be given to a clear focus on the needs of each learner through the development of individualised schemes of work.
Our courses encourage integration. In the company setting, the English language teaching should be viewed as part of the overall training operation, the English allowing access to the other elements of this programme such as HSE, IT etc.
Delivery of these courses can be facilitated by ETI’s extensive network of commercial and professional contacts in the international training world.
