Planning your CPD? The 2017/2018 training calendar is here
15 September 2017

We are delighted to announce the full training calendar for the 2017-18 academic year.

There are sessions for all levels of staff within your English language centre, from time management skills for administrators, managing accommodation, and using mobile technology in the classroom to emergency response and crisis management.

Responding to strong demand we are running safeguarding sessions every month from September to June across several locations - we anticipate these to fill up quickly, so do book quickly!

There are also some places left for the Services in Student Services Management course (Cert SSM) starting this October. And remember to save the date for the academic and marketing conferences next year.
