WHAT WE DO
The PET-Xi methodology is based on pace, energy and high- impact delivery using tightly-structured material delivered through a multi-faceted team approach, in which the role of teacher is split into its three component parts: a Motivational Lead, Subject Expert and two Supports.
Behind every single PET-Xi course is a truly impressive team of highly skilled individuals, leading to the best outcome for your learners. All PET-Xi training staff are experienced and trained:
• PET-Xi Experts come from teaching and training backgrounds and also work as examiners for awarding bodies and for external quality assurers.
• Motivational Leads are chosen for their ability to motivate and engage a broad spectrum of learners. Their training in Assessment for Learning and use of assertive questioning maximises success rates for learners.
• Supports can be either Motivational Leads and/or Experts training in the PET-Xi methodology, teaching assistants or those who have worked in the subject area or industry for many years.
