Overview

English UK's training days

As part of English UK's work to raise professional standards in our industry, we run a wide selection of training days to cover all aspects of language centres' work.

Our Professional Services team organises more than 50 training days each year, using leading industry practitioners and consultants to cover a wide range of topics in detail. Although many of these are held in London, we also arrange increasing numbers of training days in other parts of the UK.

The training days cover management, marketing, welfare and teaching issues, and are aimed at different groups of people, including managers, directors of studies, teachers and welfare officers. Some days are particularly suitable for supporting people seeking promotion, or in a new job.

The vast majority of training days cost £170 for staff from English UK member centres, and £230 for other bookings unless otherwise stated. Costs will be displayed on booking forms before payment is made.

The training days run from September to early summer, with the following academic year's courses usually announced in August.

If a day is sold out a yellow banner on the booking form will alert you to this. If you complete the contact details section (no payment details necessary) you will be placed on a reserve list and we will contact you if a place becomes available. We also try to run additional days if there is high demand.

For more information, contact Tom Weatherley, Professional Services Manager, at tom@englishuk.com.
