Carfax Contributes to China Daily Article

August 14, 2017

Carfax Education Group founder, Alexander Nikitich, is quoted in a recent China Daily article:

“Many young people in China want to ensure that their academic performance is supported by training in the personal qualities that will make them excel in the multinational workplace of the future,” said Alexander Nikitich, founder of Carfax Education Group.

As a result, the Group receives more requests from students who want to use the summer to develop their skills in areas such as interview training, presentation making, English language for maths and sciences and career planning.

Talent development at summer camp is increasingly popular among Chinese students. “We had a student who has been the national math competition prize winner, and a student with a desire and ability to sing opera,” said Nikitich, who has worked in the industry for over 20 years.

The demand from Chinese families has grown so much in recent years that Carfax opened a dedicated Chinese desk three years ago operated by UK-based Chinese-speaking education consultants.’

CARFAX QUOTED IN ABUDHABI WORLD

January 27, 2017

Christopher Gyngell, Manager of Carfax Education, Abu Dhabi, was recently quoted in AbuDhabi World’s article on ‘Where will innovation in education take learning in the future?’ discussing personalized education plans for children.

Christopher Gyngell“Five years ago, the big trend was making education available to all. That period is over, and now it’s moving into personalized plans for each individual child.

You see this particularly through the use of online portals. Children can log in, see their homework and return it to the teacher, while parents can communicate and see grades. It’s an example of when technology in schools works very well.

Now that schools have caught up in implementing this idea, it can only go further – for example, if a child is struggling with a topic in maths, the teacher can set extra homework.

But I caution against an over-reliance on it. Classroom teaching can never be replaced, and at some point that extra interface is needed to get through a hurdle – that’s when teaching becomes great.”
