Shane Wins Government Contracts

Shane Language Services, the arm of Shane English Schools that specializes in outside-lessons training, has won its first ever government contracts‚ to place Assistant Language Trainers (ALTs) into the Japanese school system. The first was to supply 16 high schools in the Saitama area - Shane was chosen above 5 other competitors who also tendered for such business. The second was to supply 19 elementary and junior high schools in the Funabashi area. In total Shane now provides tuition to over 20,000 students in 39 schools. Shane teacher Roderick Campbell was described by a member of the Funabashi Board of Education as "the best ALT the school has ever had." Jason Pietro Dominici, Director of Shane Language Services, said, "When a Board of Education requests training for their teachers in EFL methodology, this is indeed a major recognition and endorsement of Shane's quality standards in the industry."
