English for Business Studies Teachers – CLIL –
The English for Business Studies course is aimed at teachers of business studies, economics or accounting and finance who wish to improve their English to discuss or (CLIL) teach their subject.
The course runs for 25 hours per week in the UNESCO world heritage city of Bath, UK and is delivered in a comfortable central location that provides free wi-fi and refreshments. It is eligible for KA1 Erasmus staff mobility funding.
Hurrah! BREXIT is (nearly) dead! The UK is open for Erasmus and EMB is delighted to welcome you on this course.
On Request Dates
We invite teachers to request course dates as early as possible.
With a minimum of two teachers we will open up a fixed-date group course at the group participant rate. If you need a group course but can only send one teacher, we recommend contacting us several months (4-6) in advance and being as flexible as possible with your dates.

The exact course content is based on an initial needs analysis and refined through discussion with you before the course.
Previous applications show that our participants’ course aims can be quite diverse so it is important for you to give us as much information as possible about your aims early on in the application process, particularly if you would like us to open up a group course date.
Most days we split the day into 3 hours per morning and 2 hours per afternoon with a 3-hour lunch break to enable our participants to recharge and enjoy Bath’s many cultural opportunities during opening hours.
Museums and shops are open all day from 09.30/10.00 -17.30/18.00. Supermarkets stay open longer.
EMB provides a course certificate detailing course content and hours studied.
The course includes a guided history tour of Bath. EMB can help participants to plan and book evening and weekend cultural activities to enhance their cultural experience and promote the use of English outside the classroom.
We’ ll provide your teaching institution with the necessary course information to complete its Erasmus documentation before or during the course, as desired.
