This 5-day course has been specifically designed for administrative staff based in educational establishments, such as schools, colleges and universities, who wish to improve their language skills for their role in an English-speaking organisation.

Please make us aware of your language needs prior to starting at our school and our friendly, professional teaching team will aim to cover these requests during the programme. If something comes to mind during the week, then please feel free to let us know and we will do our best to include this as well.
