English for Business Studies Teachers

English for Business Studies Teachers

The English for Business Studies Teachers course is (usually) a one-to-one course for teachers of business-related subjects who wish to develop their own English language teaching materials and / or teaching skills. It is eligible for  KA1 Erasmus staff mobility funding.  

As curricula and teaching approaches vary significantly from school to school, this one-to-one format is designed to give each teacher the opportunity to develop materials and skills uniquely suited to their own teaching situation. The thirty hours includes a writing period, depending on individual need.

This course is NOT A FIXED DATE course but we can offer many dates on request. We will do our best to offer a course on your preferred dates or agree an alternative one. 

The course runs over five days in the UNESCO world heritage city of Bath, UK. It is delivered in an elegant and comfortable centrally located training facility that provides wifi access, and free refreshments. It is also possible for two or more colleagues to develop materials / skills together.
