Utilising technology to create learning opportunities

Pamoja is an education technology company based in Oxford, UK and is part of Faria Education Group.

Working in collaboration with schools

We provide schools across the globe with flexible online learning solutions that address key educational challenges, from structured content to courses fully taught by our own teachers. We help Cambridge Schools and IB World Schools broaden their subject offering to students by delivering online courses for Cambridge IGCSE, IB Diploma, Cambridge International AS and A Level programmes. We also offer an online tutoring service, Pamoja Tutor, which provides students with one-to-one assistance in specific subjects.

We’ve asked our CEO, John Ingram, and our Principal of Online Courses, Hannah Senel-Walp to share their vision for Pamoja. Watch our video to learn more about what we do!

Professional development for online teachers

Three-week training programme

We have developed a three-week programme to train educators to teach our online courses. The programme aims to:

  • clarify the expectations of online teaching
  • introduce teachers to the different tools that can be used in their online classrooms
  • help teachers learn how to expand the boundaries of their face-to-face classrooms
  • safeguarding training focused on the online environment

A supportive community

Our teachers communicate on a daily basis with department heads and colleagues. They have access to each of the subject and help forums and a variety of other communication channels such as wikis and blogs, as well as online meetings through Skype or Google Hangout, or webinars.

Ongoing professional development

Our professional learning community organises webinars and professional development opportunities throughout the year.
