Inward missions give agents the opportunity to gain direct experience of English language education in the UK, including private language schools, further education colleges, and universities; to meet and visit English UK member centres; and to experience different regions of the UK.
English UK organises several inward missions each year, each focuses on a specific part of the UK, and includes a workshop day of scheduled appointments and visits to English UK member centres.
This combination of visiting an area of the UK, meeting course providers and viewing the excellent facilities that accredited centres have to offer, gives agents real insight into learning English in the UK, the opportunity to build working partnerships with English UK member schools, and ultimately to fulfil the needs of potential students more effectively.
Inward missions are free for agents - English UK covers the cost of all accommodation, food and travel during the trip. As an agent, you are only expected to pay for your flight to the UK and any personal expenditure.
If you would like to join an inward mission in the future, please email Roz Rozidor.
