Head of Educational Systems, Junior Product Manager, Methodist, Entrepreneur, Instructional Designer
My name is Amanzhol. I am glad to see you on my CV page as a methodologist and specialist in the field of educational technologies.
I have been working in education for 8 years, mainly in the language field, but due to the specifics of the b2b segment, my experience is dozens of times wider than the stereotypical manager of a language school.
I have experience in working with an IT audience, I have basic skills in Product, Project Management, UX design, site building, HTML, HR processes.
At the moment, I am actively developing my pedagogical design skills, studying e-learning and social dynamics in teaching.
For 8 years on the market, I managed to build a language school in the b2b segment in Almaty with a turnover of 65 million tenge per year, develop partnerships with Kaspi, Kolesa Group, FedEx, Freedom Finance, Aviata, build wide networking connections with top managers of dozens of companies, implement elements of our education system at FedEx, write and conduct over 15 language and non-language programs.
