We are a leading provider of professional education services in China. Our core strength is in IT professional education services, where we are the largest provider in China with a market share of 8.3% as measured by revenues in 2013 according to IDC, a third-party research firm.
We have an innovative education platform combining live distance instruction, classroom-based tutoring and online learning modules. For each class, instructors deliver lectures from one classroom in Beijing to students in the same classroom as well as to students at our learning centers across China via simultaneous webcast. To facilitate a disciplined and focused learning environment, we staff each classroom at our learning centers with one or two on-site teaching assistants to tutor and supervise students. We complement the live instruction and tutoring with our proprietary learning management system, named the Tarena Teaching System, or TTS. TTS has five core functions, featuring course content, self-assessment exams, student and teaching staff interaction tools, student management tools and an online student community. Through this education platform, we provide job-oriented education with measurable outcomes, as demonstrated by our high job placement rates and students’ academic performance.
We currently offer courses in nine IT subjects and two non-IT subjects. Our courses provide students with practical education to prepare them for jobs in industries with significant growth potential and strong hiring demand. We believe we have successfully established “Tarena ( LOGO )” as a respected professional education brand known for high teaching quality and an excellent student placement track record. In 2013, we were recognized as the Outstanding Training Institute by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China.
