English for Administration

English for Administration

Our English for Administration course is aimed at adults with a high B1 + B2 level who wish to develop the typical English language skills required by administrators, secretaries, PAs and organisers of all types! 

The UK will continue to enjoy participation in Erasmus Plus activities with our European friends until the end of 2020, under the transition period agreement negotiated with the EU.

The UK Government has also expressed its intention to negotiate continued participation for the post-2020 period. 

The twenty-five hour programme runs over five days in the UNESCO world heritage city of Bath, UK and is held in a comfortable venue that provides wifi and free refreshments. It can be combined with the English for Intercultural Communication course the following week. 

Erasmus Plus participants can find Erasmus relevant information here.

The course is designed to improve your effectiveness in performing typical work tasks. The main course outcomes are to:

  • improve your confidence in speaking in English
  • increase your accuracy in spoken and written communication
  • revise your understanding of the English grammar and sound systems
  • refresh your memory of typical fixed phrases for networking, organising, telephoning, emailing


Course participants are provided with a full programme shortly before the course. All course materials are provided.
