CRC International partners with the Mexican National Council of Science and Technology to develop English language skills among indigenous young women.
The Political Constitution of Mexican States is committed to improving educational achievements among young people up to and including higher education. This commitment is extended to include the education of indigenous young women through grants and benefits, with the Mexican Federal Government recently announcing the sponsorship of 11 places on an English Immersion Programme.
With the support of global educational agency, You Can Learn, the National Council was partnered with Cambridge Regional College to strengthen the academic training and English language development of young female scholars from Campeche, Hopelchen, Calkini, Hecelchakan, Escarcega and Medrida Yucatan.
The English Immersion Programme has been designed to improve the general standard of English of students so they can communicate effectively, supporting their future studies. Learners will explore English grammar, speaking, reading and listening in this 4-week online programme and the latest cohort of Mexican students began their studies at the beginning of February. They will receive their certification upon completion of the programme at the end of the month.
Michelle Dowse, Deputy Principal at Cambridge Regional College said: “We are delighted to welcome our new students from Mexico. It is always exciting to welcome our new international students but more now than ever. In these unusual times we have innovated and developed new ways of delivery, ensuring our students continue to have an excellent experience. We look forward to developing both the academic and life skills of our students from Mexico”
