TransformELT is an English Language Teaching consultancy building innovative strategies for change. We enable organisations, institutions and individual ELT professionals to define, design and deliver their development plans.
I have worked on two large-scale projects for Transform ELT, in Ethiopia and Cambodia. What strikes me is the diversity of the work and the amazing support given by TransformELT. In both projects I have been given the autonomy to use my expertise to make decisions on the ground. This has led to dynamic projects, focusing on sustainability and in-country capacity-building - an ethos close to my heart.In both projects I have been given the autonomy to use my expertise to make decisions on the ground.

TransformELT brought exactly the right skills to support our education reform project in Algeria: a highly experienced, professional team with very strong intercultural skills and, crucially, flexibility and good humour. They trained Algerian Ministry of Education school inspectors to help them develop skills and resources to enhance English language provision in the Algerian school system, and the inspectors and Ministry officials appreciated the respectful and collaborative approach of the team. Highly recommended!
Working with TransformELT has given me opportunities to develop professionally and, in turn, to share this professional development with teachers in other countries. TransformELT are consistently able to put together highly qualified, experienced teams within an educational ethos of professional learning, reciprocal coaching and reflective practice.
Thank you very much for your institutional review. TransformELT have provided a detailed assessment of the business, providing key recommendations for change. They conducted their discovery sessions with emotional intelligence and forensic attention to detail. They were a real pleasure to deal with and impressed me with their combination of academic leadership, market knowledge and friendly manners. Their recommendations lay the groundwork to define, design and deliver Conlan’s future development plans.
This was one of the most rewarding projects I have ever worked on. I particularly appreciated the fact that TransformELT committed time and resources to conducting a thorough Needs Analysis. We were able to spend two weeks in Ethiopia in real classrooms, talking to students, teachers, principals, supervisors and regional leaders. This prompted the realisation that we needed to extend the focus of the project to include teachers and principals, and not just supervisors. Project delivery comprised two-week training sessions for nearly 450 educators, followed by one week of training for the monitors who would be involved in the Monitoring and Evaluation phase of the project. There were 11 highly experienced trainers, a wonderful team to live and work with. And from the feedback, we can believe that it was a life-changing experience for the participants. I very much look forward to working with TransformELT in the future.
“I’ve really enjoyed every aspect of working with TransformELT - both as a consultant and trainer. I had the privilege of working together in 2017/2018 training Algerian school inspectors.As a consultant, it was a breath of fresh air to be part of a team that I wasn’t leading! I really enjoyed the different perspectives and expertise that each of the 4 consultants contributed. I am actively seeking out new opportunities to collaborate with the team - we have already worked together very successfully on an innovative M&E project in Bangladesh sharing both the workload and perspectives. This is key - together we are better!”
I found TransformELT to be a hugely knowledgeable and professional organisation. Alan Pulverness worked with us to provide clear and workable recommendations for improvements to our existing syllabus. The work was underpinned by a clear understanding of ELT methodology and current trends in language learning. The work by TransformELT has helped shape our continued product development.
