Spot On Learning has developed additional learning material for maritime clients that work with teachers in maritime HUBs.
Seafarers often do their language training programs while on leave. Spot On Learning had designed its Maritime English programs in such a way that seafarers do most of their learning on their own, online. Their progress is monitored and support is provided by progress coaches at our support desk. Our maritime clients often work with teachers in maritime hubs that can help seafarers learn faster when necessary, for instance when they need to improve their English language proficiency for a promotion or new job. These teachers often cooperate closely with crewing agents. They use the additional material developed by Spot On Learning in classroom sessions or for individual tutor sessions.
Our additional learning material helps maritime clients combine efforts by an existing support network for seafarers with our online learning program. The combination of working online and spending time with a teacher motivates the seafarers to work towards the desired learning goal in an efficient way. Participants with a relatively large gap between required level and current level are in practice better able to close that gap if they receive teacher support, online or offline.
