Burlington English signs MoU with Mayo College, Ajmer for developing global competencies in young learners and teachers

2022:Burlington English, a leading global provider of English language learning solutions, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for developing global competencies in students and teachers of Mayo College, Ajmer. As a part of this partnership, an Experiential Zone will be created in the school to hone the thinking and language skills of the young learners in a multi-modal immersive learning environment duly supported by the thematic outcome-based interventions.

The Experiential Zone, powered by Burlington English will offer a wide range of curriculum delivery options for both students and teachers and would act as a facilitator in articulating the strategies to support the school’s vision of digitally transforming the lives of students and teachers. It would work to level up language acquisition by integrating content and technology to improve the way English language is learnt.

Educators across the globe, unanimously agree that education must evolve to equip children with the skills they need to thrive in a world that is ever-changing and unpredictable. While technical skills will remain essential, global competencies will gain prominence, making them an integral part of learning. Burlington English offers innovative and unique solutions that use a blended approach to learn English by combining online interactive lessons with in-class tutor-led classes.

Mr. Ratnesh Jha, Chief Executive Officer, The Burlington Group of Companies, said “I believe that developing global competence is a life-long process, but it is one that education can shape. The world of today, necessitates learning of English language, not just as a language, but as a medium to upskill young learners and teachers. Burlington’s world-class methodologies, supported by innovative technology, help to improve the quality of teaching, thereby directly impacting the quality of classroom learning outcomes.” He added “Through our partnership with Mayo College, Ajmer, we are committed to facilitating an environment where students will be challenged to be the best, that they can be, by extending learning to the world beyond the classroom. We equip teachers with the right support towards setting up students for English language learning success”.

Lt. Gen. Surendra Kulkarni (Retd), Director, Mayo College General Council said: “As education leaders, we need to create the right opportunities for the students, and then step back to let them thrive in an environment conducive to learning. Skills such as communication, complex problem solving, creativity, innovation, collaboration and analytical thinking will be critical in a future-proof curriculum. I wish to see my students and teachers ace these skills, along with augmenting their English language abilities, and I firmly believe that this partnership with Burlington English is the right step forward in that direction.”

The Metaverse has become one of the hottest topics in the education technology space and the centrepiece of Burlington English is its innovative AI-enabled speech-processing and training platform, making it a frontrunner in the English language learning arena.

Ms. Leena Singh, Director – Content Solution, Burlington English, said: “We need to prepare our children for the connected, fast-paced multicultural world. And the teachers need to be empowered to create immersive learning experiences that promote brighter thinking and better acquisition of English language skills. For the learning to be truly experiential, the products and the programmes, thus, need to
be designed and calibrated in the learning environment we intend to impact. So, with a lot of excitement, we return to school to pilot our flagship Burlington English products and programmes.”

Some of the esteemed guests who joined the program were Dr Achal Deep Dubey,Head of English, Mayo College, Ajmer; Ms. Samreen Ghauri, Senior Manager – Strategic Alliances, Burlington English; and Mr. Deepankar Sain, Regional Manager, Burlington English.
