NEAS congratulates American Learning Lab (ALAB) for becoming the latest Quality Endorsed Member. With a dedicated focus on teaching young learners in Vietnam, ALAB has partnered with global education company, Visang, to deliver English language programs to students aged three to six (Kindergarten English) and to students aged six to 11 (Elementary English).
With multiple Centres in different districts of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), NEAS Quality Endorsement has been awarded to four ALAB Centres in the following HCMC locations:
- 3rd Floor, Crescent Mall, 101 Ton Dat Tien Street, District 7;
- Ground Floor, Cong Hoa Garden, 20 Cong Hoa Street, Tan Binh District;
- 176 Hoa Binh Street, Tan Phu District; and
- 3rd Floor, Vincom Plaza, 12 Phan Van Tri Street, Go Vap District.
Over the past months, NEAS’s Quality Assessor completed an in-depth assessment of ALAB’s application and supporting documents, and followed up with a Virtual Quality Endorsement exercise. Alongside structured meetings and interviews with ALAB management, teachers and operational staff, class observations also formed part of the quality audit.
Since May 2021, teaching has been delivered online only and this is likely to continue until February 2022. The programs contain interactive activities, which are purposely designed for young learners, and delivered exclusively by ALAB within Vietnam.
ALAB has appointed a Teacher Quality Manager (a role that does not have a teaching load) to oversee teaching. NEAS commends ALAB for deploying effective systems (including a Parent App) to engage and inform its valued customers and stakeholders. ALAB Education Consultants provide updated information regarding student performance to ensure parents enjoy complete knowledge of their children’s progress.
