Tomorrow’s leaders learn at TechTrain!
"My generation has witnessed digital technologies steadily appear in every aspect of our lives, impacting the way we work, travel, shop, learn and even play.
I founded TechTrain with the firm belief that technology should not dominate the lives of our children! They must become more than simple technology consumers by engaging with it in healthy and useful ways. They must learn to harness it, to shape it, and to create it, in order to meet the major challenges in their lives, in professional and social contexts, and at local and global scales.
Education is being disrupted worldwide, and a rethink of how we teach and learn is underway. TechTrain's vision is to adapt the 'toolkit' that a school provides to its students, allowing them to become the effective problem-solvers and leaders of the future. This toolkit integrates tech literacy and global awareness with a mix of essential skills: critical-collaborative-computational thinking abilities, based in, and through, English language acquisition."
Christo Hughes, Founder & CEO
Through workshop environments and project-based learning, students apply technology concepts to solve real problems. TechTrain's in-house developed short courses, and long-form curricula, move students up through essential coding concepts, game creation, robotics, app build, and more.
We teach more than how to code, we show students how to be critical, creative thinkers. And we go even further still; integrating important 21st century themes of global and environmental awareness, sustainability and social responsibility, students become empowered, smarter and more responsible.
With 15 years living and working in Asia Pacific, Christo is well known for actively embracing the cultures and languages he encounters. Ten years in Vietnam and an excellent command of Vietnamese are evidence of his special commitment to the country and its path forward.
Former roles saw him leading a 6 country network of training and sourcing teams, responsible for team-building, implementing and deploying training systems. "Selecting the knowledge and skills that matter... delivering them so they are retained and effectively applied is of critical importance to Vietnam's young learners today. This is what TechTrain is all about.”
Christo holds an MA, an MBA, and graduated from Tech Elevator (USA) coding camp, where he is also an early stage investor. The school has campuses in 8 major US cities, and ranked first in CIRR's USA graduate placement tables in 2018 and 2019.
