Our Methodology

Delivery Methods

blueVisions offers the NSW AMES online World Wide English programs under three different delivery methods as follows:

  1. License only, where the school / college or corporation have their own internal English language teacher and wish to utilise this internal resource to facilitate the delivery of the blended teaching using the NSW AMES online programs
  2. Blended Delivery at Your Facility, where the students are given access to the online system and are required to review and complete one unit of study per week (or longer by agreement) individually in their own time or during work hours or school hours (where such time is provided by the employer or school). The students then attend a group review session (at your facility, school/office) once per week (during or after hours) facilitated by our teachers. These sessions are used to review the unit completed, discuss learning and provide an opportunity for the group to simulate real-life scenarios such as skills they require while undertaking higher education or skills they require in the workplace (as the case may be).
  3. Blended Delivery at Our Facility, similar as item 2 above except that the students travel to our facility. Not recommended where time is limited and can in certain cases result in students missing scheduled sessions.

Extensions are then provided for students/organisations that have an interest in the following:

  1. The IELTS Preparation is provided as an extension, once the appropriate level of NSW AMES World Wide English has been completed. The NSW AMES courses are the foundation courses to be taken prior to commencing the IELTS preparation training. For students who wish to extend their study to undertake the IELTS examination, blueVisions provides online access to the training resources using the Clarity online programs.
  2. Workplace Communication Skills (written and spoken) these are delivered under the same three delivery methods as World Wide English (see above).

Our Methodology

  • Study at your own pace in your own time online
