Joint venture with Edvec in Japan (2004 – present)

In the summer of 2004, we were contacted by an innovative and exciting new company from Japan called Edvec Inc. They publish ESL textbooks and other materials for children in Japan, Korea, and other countries. Additionally, they provide other services such as creating and selling software; they also run several private language schools. Edvec is a subsidiary of Chuman Gakuin.

Edvec decided that it would be wise to provide a wider range of services for teachers. They chose the field of professional development for English teachers in Japan. They started a non-profit organization for that pursuit called The Society for the Advancement of International Education.

Instead of starting from scratch and taking months or even years to develop their own teacher training course, they contacted us; consequentially, we worked out an agreement to license our CertTEYL program course for Japan to Edvec. They translated the course into Japanese and modified some elements to make it more suitable to teachers in Japan. The resulting program is called Teyl-JAPAN.

So far Edvec has provided our CertTEYL E-Learning course to hundreds of teachers and the market is quickly growing.

In 2012 the Ministry of Education in Japan announced that English would be a new subject in all elementary public schools. Edvec is well positioned to provide professional development solutions for thousands of teachers.

Edvec also got the course recognized by J-Shine which is the agency that officially verifies English teacher qualifications in Japan. Excellent job Edvec!
